Columbus police released more than 49 minutes of video footage Monday in connection with a Friday encounter in which an officer punched a man who refused to comply with police instructions to stay back from a scene where officers were investigating a report of gunshots.
The video is a compilation of three officers’ body cameras and two cruisers’ video footage showing at least three people taken into custody after a shooting was reported by the ShotSpotter detection system Friday in the 900 block of Heyl Avenue on the South Side. Though the scene is repeated from different angles, the clearest footage of the altercation appears to come at the 22-minute mark.
