An early morning shooting in Columbus, Ohio on Sunday left 10 people injured, with one in critical condition. The incident occurred just before 2.30 am (local time) in the Short North Arts District, an area known for its nightlife.
Columbus police reported that officers arriving at the scene found six people with gunshot wounds. Shortly after, they discovered that four more victims had been taken to hospitals.The victims, ranging in age from 16 to 27, were treated at three different hospitals in the city. One adult remains in critical condition, while the other nine are stable and expected to survive, reported AP.
Authorities are on the lookout for the suspect. Sgt Joe Albert stated that a male suspect dressed in black was seen fleeing the scene in a car. The vehicle was pursued by police, driving the wrong way on a street before entering Interstate 670 and heading west. In a post on social media platform, X (formerly Twitter), the Columbus police asked for information on the suspects’s vehicle.”Detectives need your help locating this vehicle involved in a shooting this morning in the 1100 blk of N. High St., where 10 people were shot. The vehicle is believed to be a white, 4-door Honda Civic with tinted windows,” police said.

Mayor Andrew Ginther addressed the situation on social media, urging citizens to share any information that could lead to accountability.
“The gun violence that occurred early this morning in the Short North is outrageous, it’s unacceptable, and it must stop,” he said.
Ginther also pressed for more measures from state and federal governments to prevent guns from reaching criminals. He called on parents to ensure they know their children’s whereabouts and enforce curfews at home.
“Parents need to step up – to know where their kids and teens are, and to enforce a curfew in their homes,” Ginther emphasized.
Multiple mass shootings were reported in the US on Sunday, including gunfire in an Alabama party that left 13 injured. Meanwhile another shooting in a Dallas gas station convenience store resulted in the death of a 32-year old Indian. Another shooting incident at Dr Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park at Manhattan Square in Rochester, New York, resulted in six people being injured.
