Multiple people shot outside Hilltop bar, some critical


COLUMBUS (WCMH) –At least six people have been shot outside the Spotlight Lounge on West Mound Street overnight, according to Columbus police.

Police say some of the injured are in critical condition. The victims’ ages range from 24 to 52.

Officers got the call around 2:13 a.m. Saturday regarding an argument that led to shots being fired.

They arrived to find the injured and say several managed to get to the hospital on their own.

The shootings were the result of a physical fight outside the bar, according to police. They say one man knocked another to the ground, then that man produced a gun and started to fire shots into the crowd. Police say it caused several other people to begin shooting, as well.

Police believe they are looking for at least two suspects and say they have a vehicle identified on surveillance video.
