COLUMBUS (WCMH) — One person is dead after being shot in the University District Thursday afternoon.
A Columbus police dispatcher said the victim, who has been identified as Quinten I. Fuller, 24, was shot in the 1900 block of N. 4th St., which is between 19th and 20th avenues, around 3:15 p.m. He was taken to Grant Medical Center and pronounced dead at 3:40 p.m.
Deputy Chief Timothy Becker said the victim was not an OSU student or staff member. Becker added no Ohio State students were involved in the shooting, but those who live in the area say it’s a crime that worries them and their families.
“It’s not only the place but when you go out you’ve got to be very careful now,” University District resident Phillip David said. “I’ve got kids and when they go out and a shooting goes on, you’ve got to be very careful.”
Police have identified the suspect as Kaliaf D. Ivory, 26, and have issued a warrant for his arrest. The Ohio State University sent a Neighborhood Safety notice following the shooting, which marks the seventh one in the past month.
Police continue to investigate and ask anyone with information to call the CPD Homicide Unit at 614-645-4730 or Central Ohio Crime Stoppers at 614-461-8477.
