COLUMBUS, Ohio - Police are searching for two suspects in a fatal overnight shooting in southwest Columbus.

Police told 10TV that there was a knock on the door of 2215 Eakin Road around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday night.

A man went to answer the door, and that's when his wife heard gunshots.

When police arrived on the scene, they found 39-year-old Larry A. Sigman II with a gunshot wound to the stomach.

He was taken to Mt. Carmel West Hospital and died just before 4:30 a.m.

Sigman’s wife, Gaylene Sigman, said that she never though something like the shooting would happen.

“I thought we would grow old together,” Sigman said. “We were watching a movie in our bedroom, and I heard a knock, and I woke Larry up. I told him someone was knocking at the door.”

Family members told 10TV News that Larry worked at a tire repair shop owned by his family next door to his home.

Neighbor Kathy Seagraves said that she talked to Larry just hours before he was shot and killed.

“I can’t believe he is gone,” Seagraves said. “The fact that someone could come and knock on your door and just, you’re gone. It makes you think.”

Police said they recovered a weapon, and investigators were still looking for the gunmen responsible for the crime.

Police said they had not identified a motive for the shooting but were checking video from surveillance cameras nearby.
