2 Robbery Suspects Shot During Home Invasion in West Columbus


Columbus police say two robbery suspects were shot during an attempted home invasion on the west side of Columbus Wednesday evening.

The shooting was reported around 5:30 p.m. near the Wildwood Village Apartments on Cascade Court.

Police said three men and a woman attempted to force their way into an apartment.

Officers said one of the men living inside fired at the suspects, hitting two of them.

Both were critically injured.

Neighbor Jerry Marret said this is not the first time the two people living inside the apartment have been victimized. 

They were robbed before, about a year ago, and one of the fellas was hit so hard on the side of the head cut his ear in half with a baseball bat," said Marret.

Officers are questioning the man who opened fire as they continue to investigate.
