Man Killed in W. Columbus Yard
COLUMBUS (Ken Hines) -- Investigators are trying to figure out who fatally shot a man in his backyard early Friday morning.
Investigators found the victim's body after receiving a call from a neighbor who said the man was slumped over in his W. Mound St. yard.
Detectives believe the victim was leaving for work when he was shot in the chest. His body was found near a gate that led to the property's driveway.
The victim's car was running when police arrived at the murder scene, according to investigators.
A neighbor and friend described the victim as a courteous man who looked out for others in his West Columbus community.
"Very gentle, very easy going, does anything for anybody, never says no to anybody when they ask or want something," Sonny Swank said of the victim.
Investigators will examine street surveillance camera footage in hopes of finding evidence that leads to the identification of the victim's killer.
