Ohio Man Is Shot Dead by a Deputy Searching for Someone Else

Casey Christopher Goodson Jr., 23, was fatally shot by a member of a fugitive task force on Friday as he was returning home with sandwiches, the authorities and lawyers for his family said.

The Ohio attorney general’s office, which normally investigates shootings involving police officers, said it declined to do so in this case because it was not notified until three days later, after witnesses were interviewed and the scene was cleared.

“Casey was shot and killed as he unlocked his door and entered his home,” the firm said. “His death was witnessed by his 72-year-old grandmother and two toddlers who were near the door.”

Kaylee Harper, who identified herself as Mr. Goodson’s sister, wrote on Facebook that he “literally walked across the yard, walked into the back fence to get to the side door, had his subway and mask in one hand keys in the other, UNLOCKED AND OPENED THE DOOR and stepped in the house” before the deputy shot him.
