Suspected Amazon shooter killed by Columbus police; officer shot in vest – The Columbus


A gunman who opened fire inside an Amazon warehouse facility in West Jefferson was killed by Columbus police after the man shot one officer on Sunday evening on the the West Side.

The officer was shot in his bullet-proof vest and was not seriously injured, police union leaders said. It was the second fatal shooting by a Columbus officer who was fired upon in less than 24 hours, with a Euclid officer near Cleveland shot and killed Saturday night.

No injuries were reported at the Amazon facility.

Brian Steel, president of the Fraternal Order of Police Capital City Lodge No. 9, told The Dispatch officers from Madison County in an unmarked vehicle tracked the suspects’ car as he fled in to Columbus and radioed for assistance. Multiple agencies in the area responded.
