14-year-old killed in Linden shooting

Columbus

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Police are investigating a shooting that left a teenager dead.

According to the Columbus Division of Police, around 10:03 p.m., Monday, officers were called to the 1500 block of Arlington Avenue, on the report of a shooting. When officers arrived on the scene, they found Daymar Carlisle, 14, suffering from a gunshot wound.

He was taken to Nationwide Children’s Hospital where he later died from his injuries.

One of Carlisle’s cousins said the teenager was a smart, happy, and outgoing person.

“He had a life ahead of him that was cut very short, and it’s not fair,” said Kadijah, who asked that her last name not be shared. “It’s not fair.”

A Columbus police spokesperson said investigators have identified a person of interest in this case, but that person is not in custody. He added that police do not believe the person of interest is a threat to the public.

Police do continue to investigate and ask anyone with information to call the CPD Homicide Unit at 614-645-4730 or Central Ohio Crime Stoppers at 614-461-8477.
