Henry Green’s family is suing the City of Columbus for his wrongful death, excessive force, unreasonable seizure, racial discrimination, assault and battery, and constitutional violations.
Green, 23, was shot to death by police on June 6, 2016 in the Linden neighborhood. In May, Franklin County grand jury determined the two officers involved should not be criminally charged. The Green family’s lawyer disagrees, saying the officers, “engaged in policies, practices, and customs that have been the subject of civil rights investigation, and previous lawsuits.”
Zach Rosen and Jason Bare were the two officers involved. Both of the men were in plain clothes and a leased undercover car at the CPD Summer Safety Initiative when the incident went down. Rosen and Bare saw Green walking around with a firearm. Allegedly, Green pointed the gun at the officer’s vehicle.
It was determined by detectives that Green fired six shots, Bare fired seven times, and Rosen fired 15 shots.[symple_button url=”http://abc6onyourside.com/news/local/henry-greens-family-files-wrongful-death-suit-against-city-of-columbus” color=”black” button_target=”_self”]Read more[/symple_button]
