A Columbus, Ohio cop shot and killed an African-American man in his own garage – with a shot that killed him in approximately 10 seconds.
According to police, they were responding to a non-emergency call. The department claims that someone reported a guy inside a car, turning the ignition on and off.
When officers arrived they noticed the garage of 47-year-old Andre Maurice Hill was open and Hill came out.

In the video, you don’t hear the first 60 seconds of audio – where the alleged murder took place – because the cop’s bodycam wasn’t turned on.
The cops shined their flashlights on Hill, who turned around and held his cellphone high in the air, almost to say he was not armed. They shot him and ordered him to roll over on his stomach.
He was unable to do anything but moan because he had been fatally shot. He died a short time later.
“He was an expected guest. He was not an intruder,” the mayor said of Hill during a press conference. “It is simply an unexplainable loss. None of the officers initially at the scene provided medical assistance, no compression on the wounds to stop the bleeding, no attempts of CPR, not even a hand on the shoulder or an encouraging word that medics were en route. It’s an officer’s duty to render aid.”
The shooting on Oberlin Drive occurred nearly three weeks after law enforcement fatally shot 23-year-old Black man Casey Goodson as he entered his grandmother’s home. He was laid to rest on Wednesday. The investigation into his death continues.
“Enough is enough. This community is exhausted. The African-American community is fearful and concerned and outraged. This is a stunning disregard for life,” Ginther said.
