Ohio is celebrating its 212th birthday with special events at the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus.
Columbus Man Charged In Two Fatal Shootings
Detectives in central Ohio suspect the same man was involved in two fatal shootings six days apart.
20-year-old Jonathan Dantzler has been charged with participating in a shooting at an apartment in south Columbus Oct. 30 that left a 39-year-old man dead and a 59-year-old woman critically wounded. A woman also has been accused in that case.
Dantzler also was charged with robbing and fatally shooting a 27-year-old man on the east side of the city Nov. 5.
All of the charges against Dantzler accuse him of being a member of a street gang. He has not yet been arraigned, and attorney information wasn’t available.
