Local News

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Columbus police say they discovered a double homicide on the 400 block of S. Glenwood Avenue around 8:46 Sunday morning.

According to police, officers responded to a neighbor reporting an apparent break-in at the residence, which is when they came upon a man at the back door of the residence.

The man, who was suffering from a gunshot wound, told police that his cousin was dead inside the home, according to police.

Police managed to enter the home and found two men dead from apparent gunshots.

The first man was transported to OSU Main hospital in stable condition.

Police were at the scene for at least six hours Sunday, removing several bags of evidence from the home.

A neighbor who did not want to be identified said she didn’t hear any gunshots. She also knew the two men killed and said this is a sad day, especially on Mother’s Day.

“I’ll talk to them,” she said. “I’ve gone over there and talked to them and they’ve come over here and talked to me. They’re nice people. I’m sorry for your loss and I hope whoever did this, I hope they get caught and they pay the price. I really do.”

Columbus Police have not released any details on any of the victims or any suspect information.

The neighbor, who has lived in her Franklinton home for 40 years, said the city’s violence is concerning her more now than it ever has before.

“I don’t know what the hell is happening,” she said. “I really don’t. it’s scary.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Columbus Police at 614-645-4730.
