COLUMBUS — As federal authorities announced Tuesday they are joining Columbus police in the investigation into the death of a 23-year-old Black man who was shot by a sheriff’s deputy, many questions continue to go unanswered.

U.S. Attorney David DeVillers announced Tuesday that the FBI, the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice and the Columbus Police Critical Incident Response Team will “review the facts and circumstances” surrounding the shooting death of Casey Goodson Jr. by Franklin County Sheriff’s SWAT deputy Jason Meade on Friday afternoon.
