Resident, Suspect Open Fire During Apparent Home Invasion

Two men are in the hospital Tuesday morning after a shooting at an east side apartment.

According to police, three men tried to kick-in a door at an apartment on Little Bend Circle, NBC 4’s Mike Bowersock reported.

One man inside the home apparently had a gun and opened fire at the robbery suspects, striking one of them. Then, police said, one of the robbery suspects fired back, hitting one of the residents.

Although the investigation is ongoing, detectives weren’t ruling out the possibility that the two groups of men knew each other.

“Don’t know for sure at this point – I’d say they probably do know each other,” said Columbus police Det. Art Hughes. “Everything’s still under investigation. We have other detectives down at the station questioning everybody.”

According to Hughes, the resident who was shot was in critical condition, and the suspect who was wounded is in stable condition. He said both men would be interviewed when their conditions improve.

Police said the other robbery suspects were apprehended at a nearby Meijer store following the shooting.
