Columbus police are asking for the public’s help in finding a suspect in a Wednesday afternoon shooting.
Chief Fred Shelton said officers responded to the area of Sixth Street and Sixth Avenue South about 3 p.m. for a report of shots fired. When they arrived they found shell casings and five vehicles that had been hit, but no apparent victim.
Soon afterward, police received a report of a gunshot victim at the emergency room at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Golden Triangle. Shelton said he believes the victim was involved in the Southside incident.
“He was shot in the heel,” Shelton said. “He is not talking to us.”
Shelton said there were two shooters, and the violence apparently arose out of an argument.
Ring doorbell cameras in the area caught a silver, four-door Ford Fusion leaving the area at a high rate of speed, he said.
Shelton asked anyone with any information to call Golden Triangle Crime Stoppers at 800-530-7151 or use the P3 Tips smartphone app.
