Probe of fatal shooting by police seeks ‘whole truth’


COLUMBUS, OHIO» The state investigat­ion into the fatal shooting by Columbus police of a Black man holding a cellphone must seek “the whole truth,” the Ohio attorney general said Wednesday. Republican Attorney General Dave Yost promised a “complete, independen­t and expert investigat­ion” of the shooting early Tuesday. The state Bureau of Criminal Investigat­ion, which falls under the attorney general’s office, conducts probes of Columbus police shootings under an arrangemen­t with the city.

“What we have now is an incomplete record. Wemust allow the record to be completed and the evidence to be gathered,” Yost said. “Only the truth — the whole truth and nothing else — will result in justice.”
