Press Release

COLUMBUS, OH U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) issues the following statement on the fatal shooting this morning in Columbus’ Northwest side:

“There are not enough words to express the pain and anger I feel that another Black man has been killed in our community at the hands of law enforcement in less than a month. While we do not know all of the facts, what I do know is that this is unacceptable. I am greatly concerned and call into question police procedures as well as the timing and inconsistent use of body cameras. I stand with the community in seeking the truth and demanding justice. My condolences go out to the family and friends of the victim.”
