James Hattersly, 28 shot to death by cops in Columbus, Ohio – video

“A man was shot and killed by police after allegedly pointing a gun at officers at a north-side hotel.

Investigators say hotel employees called police after Hattersly pulled a gun and threatened to kill with his wife while arguing over a room key early Sunday morning.

Police say Hattersly was spotted brandishing his gun when they arrived on the scene.

“As the officers were going up in the elevator, there was another officer outside who happened to look up and saw the suspect in the window, pointing a gun out the window.” Columbus Police spokesman Sgt. Rich Weiner said.

Investigators say Hattersly then pointed the weapon at the officers inside the hotel as they attempted to exit the elevator, causing them to open fire, fatally wounding the 28-year-old.

This is the 6th fatal officer-involved shooting in Columbus in 2012.”
