Aug 25, 2018

Columbus police have released the identities of a woman fatally shot inside an unmarked police vehicle and the officer who killed her. 

Police 30-year veteran officer Andrew Mitchell was addressing prostitution complaints Thursday morning when he took 23-year-old Donna Castleberry into custody. Police say Castleberry stabbed Mitchell in the hand with a knife during an altercation inside the vehicle, prompting Mitchell to fire multiple shots. Castleberry died at a hospital. Mitchell was hospitalized for his wound. A judge issued an arrest warrant for Castleberry on Tuesday when she failed to appear for sentencing on a misdemeanor soliciting charge in Franklin County Municipal Court.
