Foreclosures during the Great Recession added to thousands of blighted properties in Columbus. But, a state program helped fund demolition of many of those houses and apartment units.
Police Shoot, Kill Knife-Yielding Man
Columbus police say officers have shot and killed a man who threatened them with a knife.
31-year-old Jason White was pronounced dead yesterday after police say he was shot while threatening officers at an apartment complex near the intersection of Roberts and Hilliard-Rome Roads.
Officers say they responded to the scene after a woman called to say a man was knocking on her door and rambling incoherently.
