Columbus Police said on Friday, Feb. 16, 2018 that the BCI and police reviewed the shooting and determined Officer Jason Bare and former Officer Zach Rosen’s actions were within CPD policy.

Bare and Rosen were working plain-clothes detail the night of the shooting, June 6, 2016.

Green’s family and a friend walking with him say Columbus police didn’t identify themselves when they began yelling at Green.
