Columbus police say a double murder suspect was shot and wounded Wednesday by officers near Parsons Avenue and Kossuth Street. He was taken into custody shortly after the killings.
Vigil Held At Burned Out Home Where 3 Died
Relatives and friends held candles in the cold outside the Ohio house where three people died in a Christmas Eve fire.
Investigators in Columbus believe a space heater near a mattress caused the fire that killed a 4-year-old boy, his mother and a man who was staying with them in a home reported to be vacant. Monday night’s vigil came a day before the funerals for the mother and son. The boy also would have turned 5 on Tuesday.
Family members say the fire victims were good people who are missed.
The property was charged last week with a housing code violation for a different occupied home that lacked heat.
