When the responding officers first arrived, the man was in the garage with the door open.
The man, who was visiting someone at the home, walked toward officers with a cellphone in his left hand and his right hand not visible, according to a review by city officials of one of the responding officer’s body-worn camera footage.
One officer fired his weapon, striking the 47-year-old Black man, who later died at OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital.
“Neither officer at the scene activated their body-worn cameras until immediately after the shooting. Because of a 60-second ‘look back’ function of the cameras, the shooting itself was captured on video,” the city release states. “However, the function does not record audio during that 60-second ‘look-back’ window, so there is no audio of the communications (between the victim and the officers) immediately preceding or during the actual shooting.” – Mayor Andrew J. Ginther
◾️ The mayor said that the city had spent $5 million on cameras and that it was unacceptable that the officers’ cameras were not turned on.
◾️ The officer was relieved of duty and was required to turn in his Badge and gun.
◾️ The shooter is on paid leave.
◾️ It appears that first-aid was not immediately given to the wounded man.
This shooting follow another shooting earlier in the month when a Franklin County Ohio officer shot a black man carrying a bag of sandwiches. That officer was not wearing a camera.
