Bexley Police Investigate Fatal Shooting

BEXLEY (Rob Wells/Kate Liebers) -- Bexley officers said they are looking for clues in their first homicide in more than five years.

Police said 18-year-old Rudolph Edward-Anthony Calmese Jr. was shot twice just after 9 p.m. Thursday night near the intersection of Stanwood Road and Delmar Avenue. The Licking Heights High School student died early Friday morning in Grant Medical Center.

Calmese had just left the pizza shop in Gahanna where he worked before he was shot, according to police. 

"It doesn't appear that he was being pursued in any way," Bexley Police Department Capt. Bryan Holbrook said. "We're not sure exactly how he ended up here. We're still investigating that."

Officers said they found no evidence of weapons, drugs, or much of anything else at the scene. They said they are checking to see if anyone has surveillance video or any pictures to help crack the case.

Detectives said they have received a few tips in the case, and neighbors have been keeping watch.

"Who would think that people could get shot -- that there are people running around here with guns," Bexley President Polly Haas said. "We know that they are here, now we have to be vigilant."

Police confirmed Calmese was the father of a two-year-old child.

Law enforcement asked anyone with information related to this case to contact detectives at 614-559-4444.
