Authorities identify Andre Maurice Hill as black man killed by Columbus cop Adam Coy with the story

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Authorities identified Andre Maurice Hill, 47, as the unarmed black man gunned down by police earlier this week.

Adam Coy, the officer who carried out the shooting, has a history of complaints against him, including an excessive force case in 2012 that resulted in a victim being paid $ 45,000.

Coy, 44, was responding to a about a man and an SUV early Tuesday morning. Hill was reportedly holding a cell phone when the officer opened fire.

Neither Coy nor the Columbus Police Department immediately responded to requests for comment.

Coy is a 19 year veteran of the Columbus Police Department. But his tenure was marked by complaints, including allegations of excessive force. Hers is just part of a remarkably opaque history of police violence, including the murder of 23-year-old black man Casey Goodson by a sheriff’s deputy just weeks ago.

Goodson’s funeral took place on Wednesday, almost simultaneously with Hill’s identity disclosure in the latest shooting case.
