1 dead, 1 injured in Columbus shooting

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say one man was killed and another injured in a shooting in east Columbus possibly tied to a robbery.

The two men were found by police on South James Road at about 12:30 a.m. Sunday.

The identity of the slain man was not known. His death marks the city's 20th homicide this year.

The second man, 35-year-old Dwayne L. Roberts, was transported to the hospital and was reported in stable condition.

Initial inquiries suggest robbery may have been a motive. The investigation continues.
