The Daily Blackness: Casey Goodson Shot Multiple Times- Ruled Homicide, DOJ to Launch Civil Rights Investigation

(Columbus Ohio) 23-year-old Casey Goodson’s family says he was returning home from a dentist appointment and holding sandwiches, not waving a gun as authorities say, when he was fatally shot last week by a sheriff’s deputy. Police say there was a verbal exchange before the deputy shot and killed Goodson. Federal authorities are now reviewing the case.

Goodson was fatally shot last week by Deputy Jason Meade, a sheriff’s deputy working for the US Marshal’s fugitive task force as he tried to enter his own home. Columbus Police said the deputy was looking for violent offenders at the time, but Goodson was not the person being sought by the task force.
