COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Columbus Division of Police has arrested and charged an 18-year-old man in connection to the fatal shooting of a 14-year-old girl nearly two years ago.
Michael Green is charged with murder, discharging a firearm into a habitation and seven counts of felony assault in the 2020 shooting death of Indiah Corley.
On July 4, 2020, officers were called to the 1000 block of Vesta Avenue in the Linden neighborhood for a reported shooting.
Police said at the time, a group of teenagers was gathered on the street when a vehicle drove past and fired shots at them.
Three teens, including Indiah, were hit by the shots. Two others suffered injuries that were not life-threatening.
Indiah was taken to The Ohio State University Main hospital in critical condition. A week after the shooting happened, she succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced dead by hospital staff.
According to court documents from Franklin County Municipal Court, Green was arrested last week after a pursuit with Columbus police involving a stolen Kia Sportage.
He was seen inside the vehicle on Morse Road by an officer in plain clothes. Court records state that the vehicle was seen during a recent robbery.
Police followed Green south on Interstate 71 to the East 5th Avenue exit. He then went onto 9th Street where he took off at a high rate of speed, according to court records.
The pursuit ended in Bexley and court records state that Green and another man were found under a vehicle in a driveway on Merkle Road. He admitted to police that he was in possession of the stolen Kia, which was recovered by police.
Green will be charged for Indiah's death as a juvenile since his alleged connection to the shooting happened when he was 16, police said.
He is currently being held in Franklin County Jail on a charge of receiving stolen property, a fourth-degree felony.
