2 Men Killed In Columbus Shooting

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Police in Columbus say two men were killed in a shooting at an apartment that appears to be drug-related.

Two residents of the apartment in northwest Columbus told officers that the other men tried to rob them Monday afternoon when gunshots were exchanged. Arriving officers found the intruders dying on the floor.

One of the victims was identified as 20-year-old Lentwan Smith. The name of the other one hasn’t been released.

No one has been charged.

In an apparently unrelated incident at around the same time Monday, a 15-year-old boy was shot by someone who pulled up and fired from inside a car while he was walking with a friend in central Columbus. The teen was reported to be in critical condition.
