Columbus Police say two people are in the hospital after a shooting at Southside Court apartments. They say the shooting occurred shortly after 2 a.m.
After responding to the scene, authorities say they found two victims, one male and one female, who were shot. The victims say they were assaulted as they sat in a car in the parking lot at the Southside Ct. apartments.
Police say the man, identified as 37-year-old Eric Shaw, suffered several wounds and is currently in critical condition receiving surgery. The woman, who has been identified as 38-year-old Alma Ford, is reportedly in satisfactory condition and is expected to survive after being shot once. Both victims were taken and admitted to Midtown Medical Center.
Investigators say one of the victims lived in the apartments so it wasn’t uncommon for them to sit in the car and talk.
Police say they are looking for at least one suspect, although there could be more than one.
