Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the shooter and their motives.
“There might be some pictures that people were taking throughout the night,” said Columbus Police Sgt. Rich Weiner. “If they have any pictures, the investigators would love to see those, even though if you think it was insignificant, it might very well help this case.”
