Several hundred people gathered Tuesday night in east Columbus to protest a Missouri grand jury’s decision not to indict police officer Darren Wilson for shooting and killing Michael Brown in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson.
City crews clear homeless from downtown locations
Columbus refuse and fire crews today cleaned-up and disinfected sidewalks beneath railroad trestles in the 300 block of West State Street. The area is near the now-closed Open Shelter for men.
Each day an estimated 30 or more individuals seek shade or protection from wind and rain.
The city action was the first clean-up of the area since the Open Shelter was closed on June 30th.
