Police search for suspect following South Linden fatal shooting


COLUMBUS (WCMH) — A man is dead and police are searching for the suspect after a shooting Wednesday night in the South Linden section of Columbus.

According to the Columbus Division of Police, just after 11 p.m., Wednesday, officers were called to the area of E. 11th and Cleveland avenues on the report of a shooting.  

When officers arrived on scene, they were directed to a store in the 800 block of E. 11th Avenue, where they found James J. Hayden, 29, suffering from a gunshot wound. He was taken to Grant Medical Center where he later died.
