COLUMBUS, Ohio — Columbus police have arrested and charged a woman with murder in connection to a shooting in the south Franklinton area. 

Brittany J. Weldon, 27, was arrested Wednesday, September 15. 

The shooting happened on July 2 on Van Buren Drive just before 5:30 a.m. There, officers found a man, later identified as Eric Jackson, 49, who was pronounced dead minutes later. 

Police said the shooting took place following an earlier argument between two men. At one point, the victim allegedly got out of the car and was attempting to run away when police say he was shot in the back and head several times. 

The fatal shooting brings the total to 101 homicides reported in Columbus just this year. 

Investigators expect additional charges to be filed at a later time.
