An Ohio grand jury indicted former Franklin County Sheriff's Office deputy Jason Meade, who shot Casey Goodman Jr. six times, including five times in the back, in Columbus on Dec. 4, 2020.
The mother of Casey Goodman Jr., a young Black man shot and killed by a police officer in Columbus, Ohio, says his autopsy results show he was struck six times in the back with a "high-powered rifle."
Former Columbus, Ohio, Police Chief Thomas Quinlan was demoted on Thursday following the high-profile shootings of two Black men under his jurisdiction.
Tamala Payne said her son, Casey Goodson, Jr., "was murdered in cold blood, and we don't have no answers as to why he was murdered."
The Justice Department joins the ongoing investigation into the fatal shooting of Casey Goodson Jr., who was holding a sandwich, not a gun, when he was killed in Columbus, Ohio on Dec. 4.
