The police shooting of an unarmed Black man in Ohio has been documented in body camera footage provided by the police.

Around 2:30 a.m. in Columbus, Donovan Lewis, 20, was shot by law enforcement personnel who were attempting to execute a felony warrant at an apartment in the 3200 block of Sullivant Avenue. the Columbus Division of Police reported on Tuesday.

Ricky Anderson, a 30-year department veteran assigned to the canine unit, was named by Columbus Police as the officer who shot Lewis.

Elaine Bryant, the chief of the Columbus Police Department, revealed during a news conference on Tuesday that officers had banged on a second-floor apartment’s door for up to 10 minutes before anyone replied.

Officers apprehended two guys who were inside the residence, and a K9 team was called in to aid in the search.

Officers can be seen searching the flat for Lewis in body camera footage. Lewis was wanted on a felony warrant for domestic violence and assault as well as illegal handling of a handgun.

The dog can be seen walking about the kitchen and barking at a bedroom door in the video.

An officer replies, “We’re going to send that dog in,” just before Anderson moves to hold the door back and opens the bedroom door.

Anderson may be seen firing a shot in less than a second, striking Lewis while he was sitting up on a bed.

“Hands,” one officer is heard repeatedly yelling. He also orders Lewis to “crawl out” multiple times, but he remains on the bed face down.

“Cover me, I’m gonna go in,” one officer said a short time later.

“I need cuffs, I’m out of cuffs,” an officer in the room can be heard saying on the video. “Hands behind your back, do it now.”

Lewis is heard groaning as a cop lifts his right arm and tries to place it behind his back. The officer commands Lewis, who is still lying face down on the bed, to “Stop restraining.”
Until medical personnel arrived and brought Lewis to Grant Medical Center in critical condition, according to police, officers provided aid. According to authorities, he was declared dead at the hospital at 3:19 in the morning.
