Fight leads to shooting in Short North that injured three


COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Three people were shot with one left in critical condition in the Short North overnight.

Columbus Police say they were called to the scene by the Seesaw Kitchen and Bar on N. High Street just before 4 Sunday morning.

They say two men in their 20s were standing in the middle of High Street fighting when shots were fired. The third victim was standing nearby when he was hit in the crossfire, according to police.

Medics took two victims to Grant Medical Center.

Police say the shooting had nothing to do with the bar, itself.

Witnesses told police the suspect got away in a black BMW.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Columbus Police Felony Assault Unit at 614-645-4141 or Central Ohio Crime Stoppers at 614-461-TIPS (8477).
