Police took a man accused of shooting a woman at a north Columbus fire station into custody after a search Friday afternoon.
The man, identified as Carlos Martin, was taken into custody after bailing from his car and running into the Olentangy River near the Ohio State University campus at about 4:35 p.m. Chopper 10 caught police using a Taser to take the man into custody.
Witness Kristine Barkony, a junior at Ohio State University, said she was driving and saw all the cops coming after Martin.
Barkony said, “I heard the sirens in the background so I pulled over to the right, and I looked up in my rear view mirror and five police cars were coming down the road.”
That’s when she says she realized something serious was going on.
“Then 10 officers got out with their guns drawn, and they start running toward the residents hall and then you could see helicopters and tons of students," Barkony said.
According to police, they received a report that a woman was shot multiple times shortly before 3 p.m. at Columbus Fire Station #11, located at 2200 W. Case Rd.
Detectives said that the woman, identified as 20-year-old Corrina Ganzberg, was Martin's girlfriend, who recently broke up with him.
Martin allegedly forced the woman at gunpoint into a car and made her drive.
She jumped out of the car at the fire station, and Martin allegedly fired shots, striking her three times in the neck and shoulders.
Ganzberg underwent surgery and was expected to be OK.
The woman was taken to Riverside Methodist Hospital.
