CDP Board Says Officer Who Killed Murder Suspect Acted Within Policy

Apr 15, 2019

The Columbus police firearms review board says an officer acted within policy when he shot and killed a wanted man in April of last year. 

The board says Gregg Seevers shot 64-year-old Abadi Gebregziber while another officer used a taser. A grand jury earlier this year declined indict Seevers for killing Gebregziber on Walford Street. Gebregziber was wanted for stabbing and killing three people and injuring a fourth. It's not clear when the board last found an officer failed to follow policy in a use-of-force case.
