Summaryhttp://From http://www.10tv.com/content/stories/2011/08/27/columbus-shots-fired-police.html "Police said they were trying to control the crowd when one of the officers got into an altercation with Owens. Another officer opened fire and Owens later died at a hospital. Pastor Demetra Sanderfer was not there the night of the shooting, but said she had known Owens for nearly four years and found it hard to believe he would be so violent. "He was faithful to the ministry, faithful to his family, hardworking man," said Sanderfer. "This mother lost her son, we lost a friend, a 3-year-old lost his dad, so there's no hero here. It is not in his nature to hurt anyone or harm anyone; it is in his nature to help."
