Police in Columbus, Ohio, released body camera video that shows an officer shooting an unarmed Black man inside an apartment.
Donovan Lewis, 20, died early Tuesday morning.
Police were serving a warrant for domestic violence, improper handling of a firearm and assault around 2 a.m., and had reportedly told everyone to come out of the apartment.
Once inside the apartment, a police dog could be heard barking. The officer threatens to send the dog into a bedroom before opening the door. However, immediately after opening the door, the officer shoots Lewis.
During a press conference, Chief Elaine Bryant reportedly said the officer fired when Lewis appeared to raise his hand while holding something.
“There was, like, a vape pen that was found on the bed right next to him,” Bryant said, according to WCMH-TV.
The fatal incident is being looked into by the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation.
