Columbus officers shoot armed man

A police station in Ohio released body camera video Thursday showing the fatal shooting of a man a few days earlier.

Columbus Police say two officers opened fire on Kareem Ali Nadir Jones on July 7 after he tried to pull a gun on them, according to WCMH-TV.

In the video, which doesn’t have any audio for the first minute, Jones can be seen backing away from Officers Samuel James and Marc Johnson as they get out of their squad car. He puts his hands in the air, but doesn’t “get down” when the officers tell him to. He backs up towards a house, near a woman who’s standing nearby — watching all of it unfold.

As Jones gets near the front of a parked car, he turns to run while reaching for a gun tucked into his pants. That’s when the two officers opened fire.

“Cover him, cover him,” says one officer, as the audio kicks on in the video after the shooting.

“Dude, why did you do that? Why?” yells another officer, as he goes to turn over Jones, who was slumped over on his side against a chain link fence.

The officers turned him over and cuffed him while he bled all over the grass. A 9mm Glock was recovered at the scene. It had previously been reported stolen in Vandalia, Ohio. Jones was taken to the hospital, where he died on Monday.

      One less muslim we have to worry about.

  • Chris

    The police followed every protocol and the evidence proves it! The dirt bag sealed his own fate when he decided to carry a gun.

    • sandraleesmith46

      No, it wasn’t even the gun that sealed his fate: it was his choice to ignore instructions!

  • Imaybewrongbutimmostlyright

    Don’t those cops know that they were perfectly safe around the black man with a Muslim name armed with a hand gun? Why oh why did they have to shoot this perfectly innocent black man/terrorist because he was black? Ridiculous.

      I’m hoping your response was merely tongue-in-cheek, but if not, may it bite you in the other “cheek”…LOL!

        You have a hard time reading, huh?

  • jon

    so sad all he had to do was comply with the officers and spend the next 5 yrs in jail getting free room and board !!! oh well at least he saved the taxpayers the cost !!

    • sandraleesmith46

      Maybe not even that. Had he simply complied, he’d be alive, and unharmed. Whatever else followed is a different matter.

  • Guy Jewett

    amen, another thug off the street

  • sandraleesmith46

    Note the question: “Dude, why did you do that?” Those cops didn’t want to shoot; had he heeded their instructions he wouldn’t be dead now.
