A deadly home invasion in Northeast Columbus left a step-father dead and his step-son recovering from a bullet wound.

Police said Tyrone Hilton, 50, was shot in the upper body Saturday night in the 1300 block of Terrace Lane.

His step-son Lamont Quarterman, 28, was shot in the upper body and is expected to survive.

Quarterman was an amateur boxer and his former boxing coach told 10TV he once sparred with former middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik of Youngstown.

Quarterman moved from Akron to Columbus recently to get a job and resume his boxing career.

"I could hear gun shots, and then I heard a sound like someone running", said Lucille Collins.

She says she was on her couch when she heard gunfire.

"About 5. It was Pow. Pow. Pow. Pow. Pow," Collins said.

Inside police found one man dead, another man injured from a gunshot to the upper body, and a 5-year old girl who was unharmed.

"That's very sad that's like unbelievable that someone would shoot people with children around," said Amanda Hibbler. .

She didn't hear the gun shots, but called the shooting very unusual for this complex.

"This area here everyone is friendly and nice it's scarier that someone was killed just across from us," Hiblber said.

"I'm getting scared for the summer and i have a great daughter around here and I see drug deals going down around here. I don't like it," Collins said.

Police said the motive for the shooting appears to be robbery.
