Man shot to death in parked car in Ohio

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A man has been shot to death inside a parked car outside a fast food restaurant and his passenger has been seriously wounded.

The Columbus Dispatch reports (bit.ly/UqCQ2y) that police say a man in his 20s was found shot around 4:15 p.m. Tuesday in the parking lot of a Wendy's restaurant on the city's east side. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The man's name was not released because police are still trying to identify him.
