Columbus, Ohio — The Columbus Division of Police released body camera footage, two days after 27-year-old Miles Jackson was fatally shot in an exchange of gunfire with Columbus police and Mount Carmel St. Ann’s hospital security on April 12, 2021. At 12:11 pm, Westerville Police notified Columbus Police that WPD had “one of your wanted subjects at St. Ann’s hospital.” The operator identified the subject as Miles M. Jackson, date of birth 12/5/93. She informed Columbus Police that Jackson was found sleeping on a bench outside of a bank, and was taken to the hospital after a suspected relapse related to a drug overdose. She informed Columbus Police that Jackson has an open domestic violence warrant out of the case, with additional warrants for assault, falsification, resisting arrest, drug possession, and weapons under disability.

At 12:41? Columbus Police Officers Ryan Krichbaum and Andrew Howe are dispatched to St. Ann’s to take Jackson into custody. The second video from Officer Krichbaum’s body-worn camera starts at 1:42?pm., Officers Krichbaum and Howe are seen preparing Jackson for transport to the Franklin County jail. The officers are seen searching Jackson’s pockets. Officer Krichbaum appears to discover something and signals to Officer Howe. He says, “Get his arms behind his back right now,” and a struggle between the officers and Jackson begins. During the struggle, Jackson can be heard saying “I’m giving it to you man.” Police said the video shows Krichbaum tasing Jackson, taking him to the ground, where he continued to resist.

A short time later, police said the video shows Jackson’s gunfire. Police said the bullet visibly left Jackson’s pocket and Krichbaum is seen struggling to disarm him. Howe is seen in the video firing his gun, but it malfunctioned. After the initial shots were fired, Jackson is down on the ground with officers pointing guns at him. Jackson is ordered to put his hands in the air several dozen times over the course of the next five minutes. Jackson told officers that he was leaning on the gun at one point. A Taser is eventually used on Jackson again. After the Taser was fired, a gun was fired, followed by a series of gunshots. Officers are then heard calling for medics to assist Jackson. An initial investigation by the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation confirmed that Jackson was armed with a gun and fired shots.
