A manhunt is underway in north Columbus for a man eyed in the shooting death of a woman earlier this morning.

Police were called to a home on the 2000 block of North Cliff Drive, near Northland High School, around 10:30 a.m. on a report of a shooting.

Officers arrived and found 34-year-old Monique Weston suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. She was transported to Riverside Hospital where she died from her injuries.

The investigation indicated the victim’s estranged husband, 36-year-old Lenzell Weston, entered the home and fired shots at her.

Police say four children were inside the home at the time of the shooting; one of them called 911. They were not harmed.

Lenzell then fled the home and is still at large. He is considered to be armed and dangerous.

He's described as a black male, 5'9", 185 pounds last seen wearing a black shirt and black sweatpants.

Anyone with any additional information on this incident is encouraged to call the Columbus Police Homicide Unit at 645-4730 or Crime Stoppers at 645-TIPS (8477).
