Grand Jury Clears Two Columbus Cops In Fatal Shooting

A Franklin County Grand Jury has cleared two Columbus police officers of criminal wrongdoing in the shooting death of a man last January.  

Officers Bryan Brumfield and Joseph Houseberg killed Amanuel Dagebo, who was wanted for robbery. Authorities say the suspect brandished a weapon before being killed.  Brumfield was  a defendant in a wrongful arrest and excessive use of force lawsuit the city settled last year. 

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
