2 Men Killed In Shooting At Columbus Apartment

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Police in Columbus say two men were killed at an apartment in a shooting 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 alleged intruders dying on the floor.

One of them was identified as 20-year-old Lentwan Smith. Police say the other man was 21-year-old James Brice.

No one has been charged. Police say they are looking for a light blue, four-door Buick that left the scene.

In an apparently unrelated incident around the same time Monday, a 15-year-old boy walking with a friend was shot by someone in a car in central Columbus. The teen was reported to be in critical condition.
