Columbus Public Safety Director Ned Pettus

The union that represents Columbus police officers says it hasn't decided yet whether to formally challenge the termination of an officer who killed an unarmed man three days before Christmas.  But it is filing a grievance over the way officer Adam Coy's firing was handled.

Hours after an administrative hearing, the Columbus Public Safety Director has ordered a police officer who shot and killed an unarmed man last week be fired.

A termination hearing for the Columbus police officer involved in the shooting death of an unarmed black man last week concluded this morning.
