A cell phone looks like a gun or you think you seen someone carrying a gun or someone told you a black man in a white neighborhood carries guns?

Ohio woman falsely called police on Black man using his phone, said he was carrying a gun


A Hudson resident who works for Summit County, he was at the Portage County Job and Family Services building parking lot off South Chestnut Street for a 9 a. m. training meeting. Cooper got to the building early, signed in and went to sit in his car at about 8:47 a. m., drinking tea and talking on his cell phone.

When the Ravenna cops pulled into the parking lot, he said he initially didn’t think anything of it. Summit County has police officers at the building he works in, he said, so he didn’t think anything was wrong until the fourth officer rolled in.

That’s also when the police came up to his car, yelling, “Put your hands up!”
==========================================================================
Cooper was the only Black man in the parking lot in a Mustang. He says he doesn’t understand how the caller would have seen a gun in his hand, especially if she was across the street. The caller identified his car as black when it is dark grey, he said. She did not identify him as a Black man, but she did identify his car.
=============================================================================

In the 911 call, the woman does not seem certain that what Cooper is holding is a pistol.

“I really believe he was holding a pistol,” she said at one point in the call, and later said, “I’m pretty darn sure it's a pistol.”
