Records: Police sent often to home of man killed at airport

HILLIARD, Ohio (AP) — Records show Ohio police responded frequently to disturbances in the past year at the apartment of a man who was fatally shot after lunging at an officer with a knife outside an airport.

The most recent report came Tuesday, one day before the shooting. That's when an apartment property manager reported someone fitting the suspect's description was scaring residents by yelling and talking to himself as he loaded items into a vehicle.

Police say Columbus airport officers shot and killed Hashim Hanif Ibn Abdul-Rasheed (hah-SHEEM' hah-NIHF' ee-bihn rah-SHEED') on Wednesday during a confrontation by his improperly parked car.

The records say police responded to a domestic violence report in September and Abdul-Rasheed's wife said he suffered from paranoid schizophrenia and had not been taking his medication.
