A woman has died after being shot outside a UPS distribution center in west Columbus.

Columbus Police officers were called to the UPS complex on Trabue Road just before 4 a.m. Friday on a report of a shooting.

Upon arriving at the scene, officers located Joyce D. Fox, 50, in her truck suffering from at least one gunshot wound.

She was taken to Mount Carmel West with life-threatening injuries. Police said she died from her injuries Friday night.

Soon after the shooting, police swarmed the area and spotted 54-year-old Danny Ronald Fabro, the suspected shooter, leaving the facility.

Officers chased Fabro for several miles on side roads and Interstate 70. Officers used stop sticks on Broad Street, causing the vehicle to stop near Wilson Road.

Officers and a SWAT team surrounded the vehicle. The suspect was suffering from a self-inflicted wound when officers approached the car, according to police. He was taken to Mount Carmel West in critical condition.

Columbus Police are still investigating what led to the shooting. Fox just ended her shift when she was confronted outside by Fabro, according to police.

Investigators say initial reports indicate the suspect and the victim had been dating at one time but were not involved since November of last year.

Fabro was initially charged with felonious assault in the shooting. Police said a murder charge is now pending.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the Columbus Police Homicide Unit at (614) 645-4730 or Central Ohio Crime Stoppers at (614) 461-TIPS.
