Police Searching For Suspects Who Escaped During Foot Chase


Police took one person into custody and were searching for more suspects who got away during a foot chase in east Columbus early Friday morning.

Officers said they stopped to investigate suspicious activity in an area known for drug activity.

A group of at least three people were standing at the intersection of Livingston and Lilley Avenues.

Police said when the officers pulled over to talk to the group, they all took off running.

Officers tackled one man at Kelton and Livingston Avenues, and recovered a gun they say the man tried to throw away during the chase.

That man was taken into custody and questioned.

Police say they plan to do a DNA test on the gun to confirm it belongs to the man.

The other suspects have not been found.
