COLUMBUS, Ohio — A man has been charged in connection with the fatal shooting of a 51-year-old man in Franklinton earlier this month.

Mark Stephens, 41, has been arrested and indicted on a charge of aggravated murder in the shooting of Jimmy Crum.

According to police, officers responded to the 1200 block of West Town Street around 5:30 p.m. 

According to police, the shooting happened outside Van's Carry Out near West Town Street and South Princeton Avenue.

Investigators say there was a fight inside the store earlier in the day. One person involved in the fight, Stephens, was kicked out of the store. Stephens threatened to come back and shoot the employees. 

A short time later, police say Stephens came back with a group of people. Another fight started outside the store, shots were fired and Crum was hit.

Crum was taken to Grant Medical Center in critical condition. Crum was pronounced dead two days later.

Stephens was arrested on Feb. 12. He was indicted last week on charges of aggravated murder, murder and having weapons under disability.
