COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – A man accused of shooting into a crowd of people during an outdoor vigil has been arrested and was in court Monday morning.
Columbus police said that 29-year-old Sagittarius Lamar was arrested and charged with three counts of felonious assault after he allegedly shot at a group of people holding a vigil on the 700 block of Canonby Place at 3:30 a.m. Saturday morning. During the South Franklinton vigil, Lamar reportedly leaned out of his window of an apartment on the same block and began shooting.
Three women, ages 22, 25, and 26, were shot with one being shot in both legs, another in the shoulder, and the third victim in the back. All three were taken to Grant Medical Center in critical condition and have all been upgraded to stable condition.
Lamar, who has three other pending cases later this month, including two felonies, was issued a $1 million bond at his arraignment hearing Monday and will next appear in court on June 13th for a preliminary hearing.
