Donovan Lewis killed by Columbus, Ohio Police

(CNN)Police in Columbus, Ohio, have released body camera video that shows a police officer serving a felony warrant fatally shooting an unarmed Black man in bed.

Donovan Lewis, 20, died Tuesday after being shot by Police Officer Ricky Anderson, a 30-year veteran with the Columbus Division of Police assigned to the K9 unit, according to a police statement.

There was no justification for the officer to shoot, Rex Elliott, an attorney for Lewis' family, said at a news conference Thursday morning.

"Donovan was unarmed, and he was abiding by police commands to come out of his room when he was shot in cold blood by Officer Anderson," Elliott said, flanked by Lewis' parents, siblings, grandmother, aunt and family friends. They were "just a few of the many people that have had their lives altered forever because of the events of early Tuesday morning."
