Shocking Ohio Police Encounter Ends in Fatal Shooting of Amazon Security Guard in Attempted Supervisor Murder

In Columbus, a tragic incident unfolded at an Amazon warehouse in West Jefferson when a 22-year-old security guard trainee, Ali Hamsa Yusuf, was shot by police after attempting to harm his supervisor and engaging in a shootout with officers.

The altercation began at the warehouse around 4:45 p.m. as Yusuf, armed and not authorized to carry a gun on duty, tried to shoot his supervisor from close range, but the weapon malfunctioned. Despite the scary situation, no one was hurt during the initial confrontation.

Around an hour and a half later, Yusuf was found in Columbus, leading to a gun battle at the intersection of Georgesville and Clime roads where both he and a veteran police officer were wounded. Fortunately, the officer, wearing a bulletproof vest, survived and was discharged from the hospital.

Although the warehouse’s front entry showed signs of gunfire, the police chief confirmed that Yusuf did not manage to enter the building. The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation is now handling the case, with support from various agencies following the distressing events that transpired shortly after a deadly police encounter in the same area.

Yusuf, who had no prior criminal record, was declared dead at Doctors West Hospital, leaving authorities puzzled about his intentions. As the investigation continues, the community is left shocked by the unexpected disruption of peace brought on by this tragic event.

Police located Yusuf in a white Toyota Camry in Columbus, 20 miles away from the warehouse, approximately 90 minutes after the initial incident. Columbus police acted swiftly in response to the unfolding situation.
