We are honored to announce attorneys Richard Schulte and Michael Wright have joined forces with national civil rights lawyer Benjamin Crump to represent the family of Andre Hill, the Columbus man who was shot and killed by an officer with the Columbus Division of Police December 22. Attorney Schulte says:
“It’s an honor and a privilege to help this family during such a difficult time.”
Andre Hill was shot seconds after officers with the Columbus Police Dept. arrived at a house where Hill had been visiting. Columbus Police Chief Thomas Quinlan moved to terminate the officer earlier this week. Read more about the story here by ABC News.
“While nothing can bring Andre Hill back to his family, we will do everything in our power to ensure that this family holds the Columbus Police Dept. accountable for the actions of the officer who took Andre’s life,” said Wright.
Police chief moves to fire officer who fatally shot unarmed Black man: An investigation has been launched into a police shooting after body camera footage showed Andre Hill approach an officer that responded to a non-emergency call on Tuesday morning.
