13-Year-Old E. Columbus Girl Charged with Shooting Young Boy

COLUMBUS (Ken Hines) -- A 13-year-old girl is in police custody after allegedly shooting another child in the neck on Sunday night inside an East Side home.

The young suspect shot a 12-year-old boy at 964 E. 18th Ave. in front of three witnesses, according to police.

"I was here, but I was not in the same vicinity," the victim's uncle, Tony Coleman, said. "I was somewhere else in the house, so I don't know what happened."

The victim was transported to Nationwide Children's Hospital in stable condition.

Police are questioning witnesses in hopes of determining what might have led the young girl to shoot another child.

"I'm just as shocked as anyone else," Coleman said. "The world is coming to an end with this crazy stuff happening."

The suspect has been charged with felonious assault.
