COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — Police say an attempted robbery in east Columbus turned into a shooting that left the victim hospitalized.  

According to the Columbus Division of Police, at about 10:45 p.m., Wednesday, a 15-year-old male and an 18-year-old male were walking in the area of Seymour Avenue and E. Livingston Avenue when a group of young males approached them.  

Police say a member of the group pulled up his shirt to show a handgun in the waistband then demanded the victims’ property.  

The 15-year-old then ran away before one of the suspects punched the 18-year-old victim, knocking him to the ground where the group continued to punch him several times. After one of the suspects shot the 18-year-old in the right foot, they took off running without getting property from either victim, according to police.
