Gun-battle veteran to be police trainer

        A Cincinnati police officer involved in two high-profile gun battles in less than three weeks will now train other officers.

        Officer Thomas Haas, a nine-year veteran of the police division, has been transferred to the training academy.

        Ted Schoch, academy director, said he had been asking for an additional staff member for some time. Officer Haas seemed a good choice, in large part because he has fresh experience in some of the worst kinds of situations a police officer can encounter.

        Officer Haas, 33, shot and killed Rickey Moore on July 27 in South Cumminsville after Mr. Moore fired a shotgun at him. Seventeen days before, the officer was involved in a run-and-shoot battle with Deangelo Williams, 34, whom police said tried to snatch jewelry from a Lexus driver in Over-the-Rhine. At least 36 shots were fired and Mr. Williams was arrested.
