10 Injured in Columbus Mass Shooting; Suspect Vehicle Sought by Police

In the wake of a tragic shooting in the Short North area, Columbus police are seeking assistance from the public in locating a suspect vehicle linked to the incident.

Authorities have issued an appeal, stating, “Detectives need your help locating this vehicle involved in a shooting… where 10 people were shot.” The vehicle under investigation is described as a white, 4-door Honda Civic with tinted windows.

Fortunately, all 10 victims, including two juveniles, are expected to recover from their injuries, according to updates from law enforcement.

The suspect, described as a male wearing all black attire, remains at large as authorities intensify their search efforts.

The shooting occurred around 2:30 a.m. in the vicinity of the 1100 block of North High Street near East 3rd Avenue. Responding officers discovered six victims at the scene with gunshot wounds, while additional victims sought medical attention at local hospitals, bringing the total count to 10.

NBC 4 reported that police initiated a pursuit of the suspect vehicle but unfortunately lost track of it. Expressing profound dismay over the incident, Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther condemned the mass shooting as “outrageous” and “unacceptable.”

While reassuring the community about safety in the Short North area, Ginther emphasized the imperative of enhancing safety measures across all neighborhoods.
