Ohio cop shoots dead unarmed man, 20, in his bed

Postby WayneB » Thu Sep 01, 2022 3:42 pm

From the article:
Donovan Lewis, 20, was shot and killed in his bed on Tuesday by police in Columbus, Ohio
Officers had arrived at the apartment on Sullivant Avenue, in the Hilltop district of the city, just before 3am
They were serving a felony warrant for domestic violence, assault, and weapons-related incidents on the second floor of the apartment complex
Police knocked on the door for several minutes, yelling at those inside to come out, and two men did and were handcuffed and sat on the floor
A K-9 was sent inside and found Lewis' bedroom: the K-9 officer, Ricky Anderson, a 30-year veteran of the force, opened the door and fired a shot one second later
Lewis was unarmed but had a vape pen beside him: he died in hospital, and Anderson has been placed on leave pending an investigation

I honestly believe this was a negligent discharge, and why your primary light source should not be on the muzzle of your gun. I've watched this film over and over and it appears to me that either he pulled the trigger due to tendon contraction or else confused the trigger with the light switch while on sensory overload.

The immediate reaction after the shot is "Oop" and reholster.

That's my opinion, worth everything you paid for it.

Officer was trying to manage too many things at once: The K9, the gun, the light, the door... the backup officer should have stepped forward to clear the room while the K9 officer went to backup.

I saw this on Donut Operator's Youtube channel. I thought it was a negligent discharge, too. I never knew how the light works on a firearm since mine do not have them. Your explanation makes a lot of sense.

Am I the only one that read that like the officer shot an unarmed dead guy?
