Police have arrested a 16-year-old boy in connection to a quadruple homicide.

Columbus police said they have charged Jordyn D. Wade with four counts of murder and five counts of kidnapping in connection to a shooting on East Hudson Street that took place Saturday morning.

Police have identified the victims as Angela D. Harrison, 35; Tyajah Nelson, 18; Daniel Sharp, 36; and Michael Ballour, 41.

Officials have not released any information about a second suspect, described as a black male, believed to be involved in the case.

Sgt. Dave Sicilian said Columbus police are “working around the clock trying to determine who that.”

“The investigation has many tentacles to it so it’s kind of a complicated investigation and there’s a lot of detectives working hard along with the patrol officers, who are collectively working hard together, to try to get this thing resolved as quickly as possible,” he said.

The shooting occurred Saturday morning in the 1600 block of Hudson Street Saturday morning. Police said the victims were found in multiple locations inside the house. Medics pronounced all four dead.

Police said a fifth person, a woman, was found nearby with a gun shot wound. She was taken to Grant Medical Center in stable condition. Police said she was treated and released by Saturday afternoon.

Sicilian said her safety is a priority.

“We don’t quit until we get the suspects, so what’s next is the next piece of information, develop it as far as we can go with it and hopefully it leads us to the suspect,” he said. “Every bit of information we receive is important enough to follow up on completely and thoroughly.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Columbus police at 614-645-4545.
