That stretch of highway from Interstate 670 westbound and eastbound onto I-71 South closed to traffic for three hours, until about 4:50 p.m., according to the Ohio Department of Transportation.
Columbus police investigated the scene of the shooting and cleared it around 4:50 p.m. They did not have any information on a suspect as of Tuesday evening.
