December 23rd, local time, a policeman in Columbus, Ohio, was dismissed. The policeman shot and killed an innocent African-American man at the 22nd while enforcing the law on the 22nd.
At 1:37 a.m. local time on December 22, the police went to the residential area northwest of Columbus to investigate for law after receiving a noise complaint call.
When the police arrived at the scene, they found that the garage door of a house was opened, with an African-American man inside. At that time, the man held his mobile phone in his left hand and put his right hand in his pocket of his clothes and walked to the police.
A police officer immediately shot the 47-year-old African-American man, killing him in the rescue. In a later on-site investigation, the police confirmed that the black man was not wearing any weapons at that time.
In response, Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther said it was unacceptable for the officer to record the operation without turning on the portable camera before shooting and should be suspended.
At the same time, the Ohio Criminal Investigation Bureau also launched a further investigation.
It is reported that this is the second shooting of a black man by police in Ohio this month.
A few weeks ago, Ohio police shot and killed an innocent 23-year-old African-American man.
On the evening of the 22nd, protesters gathered outside the Ohio Convention venue to express their dissatisfaction with the shooting of another African-American in the city.
