Columbus, OH, Police Officer Adam Coy Fired over Killing of Andre Hill
DEC 29, 2020
The city of Columbus, Ohio, has fired the police officer who shot and killed Andre Hill, a 47-year-old Black man. Officer Adam Coy also faces criminal and internal investigations after last week’s fatal shooting, when Coy opened fire just seconds after encountering Hill, who was unarmed. Officer Coy was not using his body camera properly at the time, and he failed to administer aid to Hill for several minutes as Hill lay dying. Coy has racked up dozens of citizen complaints since 2002, including a 2012 incident when he repeatedly smashed the head of a driver into a police cruiser during a traffic stop.
