COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – A man is dead after leading police on a five-mile chase late Wednesday night in the south side of the city.
Police reported that a man was shot on Marion Road North near the intersection of Marion Road in the Innis Garden Village neighborhood after a five-mile pursuit that began in the Far South neighborhood. Around 3:30 p.m., the Columbus Division of Police identified the man, who later died, as 36-year-old Jamie David Overstreet.
According to a Columbus Division of Police incident report, officers originally arrived at the 1100 block of Rendezvous Lane, near Lockbourne Road and Obetz Road, at 10:40 p.m. to look for Overstreet, who had multiple warrants for violating a protection order.
Officers found the suspect leaving the area in a car and attempted to initiate a traffic stop. Overstreet drove away from the area and a CPD helicopter began to follow his car moments later.
Police said they witnessed Overstreet’s car hit another vehicle near Parsons Avenue and Corr Road, but it continued to drive away until it stopped in the 1300 block of Marion Drive North. Overstreet then got out of the car and began to run towards Marion Drive, according to CPD.
Overstreet reportedly drew a gun, and a Columbus police officer then shot him. The division said it would not release the identity of the officer who fired his weapon, citing Marsy’s Law. However, it did say the officer has been with CPD for three years.
Medical crews took Overstreet to Grant Medical Center. He was originally listed in critical condition but did not survive. Staff pronounced him dead at 11:42 p.m.
Marion Road was closed between Lockbourne Road and Fairwood Avenue while the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation processed the scene. A gun was recovered from the scene and no officers were injured during the incident.
