COLUMBUS – A federal appeals court ruled against Walmart and in favor of the family of a Black man who was shot and killed by police in its Beavercreek location while holding a toy assault weapon.

The ruling from the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reverses a lower court’s decision to dismiss the wrongful death lawsuit.
