U.S. Attorney David M. DeVillers statement on Dec. 22 police-involved shooting
(STL.News) “After speaking with Mayor Ginther and Ohio Attorney General Yost, I was informed that BCI was immediately notified of the fatal officer-involved shooting that occurred early yesterday. BCI is investigating this matter, as is policy with all shootings involving Columbus Division of Police.
The mayor requested that the U.S. Attorney’s Office review the investigation for possible federal civil rights violations, and after consulting with Ohio Attorney General Yost, I agreed that my office will review the case as requested once BCI’s investigation is complete. This office will then consult with the Franklin County Prosecutor’s Office on how to proceed at the conclusion of our review.”
