(CNN) Body camera footage released Wednesday shows a Columbus, Ohio, police officer fatally shooting an unarmed Black man in a garage within seconds of their encounter.

The officer had been responding to a non-emergency disturbance call from a neighbor, according to the Columbus Department of Public Safety.

The shooting is the latest involving law enforcement in Columbus , where less than three weeks ago another Black man, Casey Goodson Jr. , was fatally shot by a Franklin County sheriff's deputy.

The December 4 shooting is the subject of a joint criminal civil rights investigation.

Speaking at a news conference on Wednesday, hours after attending Goodson's funeral, Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther called for Coy to be fired.

Ginther said Hill was an expected guest at the home where he was shot and he "had committed no crime.".

CNN has reached out to the Fraternal Order of Police Capital City Lodge No. 9, which represents the officer. »
