COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — Police say a man charged with a fatal shooting at a Roosters restaurant in north Columbus last month, is also a suspect in another shooting.
Court documents show that Jesus Tajeda-Castro, 18, was arraigned Thursday and has been charged with murder in connection to the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Marshawn Davis.
According to the Columbus Division of Police, around 10:16 p.m., Feb. 18, a shooting was reported at the Roosters restaurant located at 2454 E. Dublin-Granville Road.
Video of the shooting shows Davis standing in the vestibule of the restaurant when the suspect opens the outer door, points a gun and fires.
After he was shot, Davis and another person ran into the restaurant as the suspect runs away from the restaurant.
Davis was pronounced dead at the scene. According to the court documents, Tajeda-Castro and Davis had known each other after attending school together for several years, and witnesses told police that Tajeda-Castro at one point had threatened to shoot and kill Davis.
Police have confirmed that Tajeda-Castro is also a suspect in a shooting, March 6, along Cleveland Avenue, that left two people injured, including one in critical condition. Tajeda-Castro was arrested Wednesday after a pursuit by Columbus Police SWAT officers.
Police continue to investigate the shooting.
