Columbus police shoot suspect, 17, after chase

  • December 8, 2013

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Columbus police said officers have shot a teenage suspect after a protracted chase.

The 17-year-old male was in critical condition Sunday. His identity was not being released pending an investigation.

Authorities say the boy’s actions forced officers to discharge their weapons.

They had been called by a woman who said the suspect was in her residence in northeast Columbus with a gun. When his vehicle was stopped by police, he forced a female driver from behind the wheel and fled. Officers followed.

The suspect drove into a dead-end parking lot, and then took off on foot into a dark, wooded ravine near Stone Gate Circle and Olde Ridenhower Road. Police say officers fired during an exchange in the woods.

The male was treated and transported to Grant Medical Center.
