CDP: Man Shot By Cop Was Not Holding A Gun

Franklin County Sheriff's Office

Columbus police say a man shot and wounded by an officer during a burglary call last month was holding a cellphone rather than a gun. 

The police division says in a news release the responding officer was dispatched to the Karl Road home February 24. Police say the officer fired on 27-year-old Roddale Garmany after the suspect "made an unexpected gesture."  Garmany faces domestic violence and assault charges. 

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.
