COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — A man who was accused in a deadly shooting two years ago in southeast Columbus has been found guilty by a jury.
According to the Franklin County Prosecutor’s Office, 20-year-old Othman Abdu was found guilty of murder, aggravated murder, and felonious assault in two separate shootings on Halloween 2021.
At 6:35 p.m. on Oct. 31, 2021, officers found 21-year-old Nazeer Winton lying in the roadway with multiple gunshot wounds near an apartment complex on the 3200 block of Rabbit Hill Lane. Winton was taken to a hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
