Columbus Police Shoot Knife-Yielding Man On West Side
Columbus Police say an officer shot a knife-wielding man when he ignored orders to drop it.
Police said it happened Monday night at an apartment complex on Stimmel Road after officers were dispatched to break up a fight at an apartment complex.
Inside one of the apartments, an officer was confronted by a 19-year-old man holding a knife. Officers said he ignored repeated commands to drop it, and the officer shot him once.
The suspect – who has not been named – was hospitalized with a gunshot wound to his hip and a neck laceration. He was in stable condition. Nobody else was hurt.
It was the second time in as many days that Columbus police shot a suspect wielding a weapon.
