Police Ask Public For Help In Festival Shooting Probe
Columbus police are seeking any video that may have been taken of a shooting at a weekend festival that wounded an 11-year-old boy.
The shooting happened Saturday night at the Juneteenth Festival, which celebrates the end of slavery in the U.S. The violence ended the annual festival at a park just outside downtown. The boy was hit in the leg by a stray gunshot and hospitalized with injuries that weren't life-threatening. Columbus police arrested a 15-year-old boy. Police say four other young people had been involved in fighting and were arrested before the shooting. Officers are asking the public to take a look at any cellphone or other video captured to see if it could be used as evidence in the case.
