COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – A woman shot a man multiple times Friday on the northeast side of Columbus before trying to escape in a car, according to area police.
Officers on special duty at Easton Town Center responded to a shooting at the outdoor mall around 12:23 p.m., according to the Columbus Division of Police. In the 3000 block of New Bond Street, they found a man with multiple gunshot wounds and in critical condition.
CPD later named Alexis M. Jones, 27, as a suspect in the shooting. While CPD initially said the shooting happened during a robbery, investigators later clarified around 5 p.m. that it was a result of a domestic dispute.
After Jones shot the victim, she got in a car and drove away from the scene. Mifflin Township police stopped and arrested her a short time later.
Medical crews took the victim to Ohio State University Main Hospital, where they were eventually upgraded to stable condition, according to CPD.
The division asked anyone with more information on the shooting to call one of its detectives at 614-645-7225.
