Columbus, Ohio — Columbus Division of Police and city officials released body camera footage after an officer fatally shot a 20-year-old man within seconds of encountering him while attempting to serve an arrest warrant earlier that day. The footage was publicly revealed Tuesday afternoon, hours after the shooting, in a media briefing attended by Mayor Andrew Ginther.
On August 30, 2022, Columbus K-9 officer Ricky Anderson and other officers went to an apartment building in the 3200 block of Sullivant Avenue to serve a warrant. Officers took two people who answered the door into custody, then searched the apartment with a K-9. During the search, officer Anderson fired a single shot at 20-year-old Donovan Lewis after he raised his hand with something in it, which appeared to be a vape pen. Lewis was carried from the apartment and was rendered medical aid by officers applying what appears to be a trauma bandage and performing CPR. Lewis died at Grant Medical Center. He had outstanding warrants for domestic violence, assault and improperly handling a firearm.
