. Ohio Cop Fatally Shot a Black Man Who Was Holding a Cell Phone « JO LEE MAGAZINE

VICE/A Columbus police officer shot and killed a Black man early Tuesday morning, but failed to activate their body-worn camera until immediately after the shooting—prompting outrage from community members and city officials.

The little bit of body camera footage that does exist, thanks to a function that captures a short “look back” once the camera is turned on, shows that the man had “walked toward the officer with a cell phone in his left hand,” while his right hand wasn’t visible, according to a statement from Columbus police.
