COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — An 11-year-old girl is hospitalized after a shooting Sunday afternoon on the west side of Columbus.

Columbus police said the shooting was reported at 1:42 p.m. on the 2700 block of West Mound Street in the South Central Hilltop neighborhood.

At the scene, the mother told Columbus officers that her daughter was shot in the back while riding in a car. In addition to the girl and her mother, a 1-year-old girl was also in the vehicle, police said.

The victim was taken to Nationwide Children’s Hospital in stable condition and is expected to recover from their injuries.

One resident of the neighborhood said this kind of thing doesn’t happen in the neighborhood.

“A 12-year-old got shot,” said Cassandra Wolford. “Like, man, no, nothing like that has really ever happened. Like, doors have been kicked in, but a kid has never been shot.”

Police suspect a boy between the ages of 15 and 17 may be involved in the shooting.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Columbus police Det. Nathan Komisarek at 614-645-2971.
