His family said he was carrying a sandwich.The sheriff's office said the deputy who fired the shots, Jason Meade, a 17-year veteran of the force, was assigned full time to the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force at the time of the incident.The task force had wrapped up an unsuccessful search for "violent suspects," according to police investigators, when the shooting took place.The man killed, 23-year-old Casey Goodson, was not an object of the search, nor was he wanted by law enforcement prior to the incident, according to police.Family members said Goodson was shot three times in the back. The shooting remains under investigation"At this time, Deputy Meade is not on duty and is awaiting interview by the Columbus Division of Police Critical Incident and Response Team, which is investigating the incident," the Franklin County Sheriff's Office said in a statement.Peter Tobin, U.S. Marshal for the Southern District of Ohio, said that Goodson was brandishing a weapon, then things took a turn for the worst."He was seen driving down the street waving a gun, and that's when the deputy, at some point after that, he confronted him and it went badly," Tobin said at a Friday press conference, NPR member station WOSU reports.The station adds that authorities provided few details about the encounter or what triggered Meade's use of deadly force.
