COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – One person is dead after a shooting outside of a north Columbus bar early Friday morning.
Officers responded to reports of shots fired at approximately 1:55 a.m. at Jack’s Corner Pub in Old North Columbus, on Summit Street. The victim, who has been identified as Nasier Reid, 23, was suffering from a gunshot wound and pronounced dead at the scene.
Police said Reid’s body was found outside of the bar, but it is unclear whether he was shot inside or outside and officers appeared to be investigating both locations. A sergeant at the scene said the shooting began as a fight and continued to escalate. No one is in custody at this time, but police said there are potentially two male suspects.
The sergeant also said the pub has had a history of crime issues. In March of 2022 area residents took to change.org to file a petition to have the establishment shut down permanently.
The Columbus Division of Police has asked anyone with information to call its homicide unit at (614) 645-4730 or Central Ohio Crime Stoppers at (614) 461-TIPS (8477).
