COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — A Friday evening shooting in Columbus’ Weinland Park neighborhood has hospitalized one person.
Dispatchers confirmed to NBC4 that officers responded around 8:23 p.m. to reports of shots fired in the area of 1396 N. High St. Emergency crews took one person to Ohio State’s Wexner Medical Center in serious condition.
Photos showed Columbus police had set crime scene tape up, with multiple officers and cars posted in a perimeter on both sides of a road between 7th Ave. Community Baptist Church and the building housing Uncommon Columbus.
A witness at the scene told NBC4 they had just parked at the Kroger across the street when they heard the gunfire. The witness called 911 after they saw someone run out of the alley while a male victim remained with a gunshot wound near his ribcage.
Officers could be seen examining security cameras in the parking lot of the Kroger store. Columbus police had not shared information on a possible suspect as of 11:00 p.m.
