A woman driving past the vigil for the shooting victim was fatally hit in the head
According to CNN, Franklin County of the Ohio Police Officer’s Office stated that a woman who was driving past the night watch for a victim of a gun shooting was fatally blown to the head on Saturday night and five others were injured.
The incident occurred in Columbus on Saturday, when a small group of people gathered in the parking lot of the Dollar General store to be vigilant. The Sheriff’s Office stated in a press release that the vigil was for Jarrin Hickman, who was killed at the scene a year ago.
At around 7:30 in the evening, a dark van passed the night watchman, and the people in the car began to fire at the crowd. Five people were hit by gunfire, including a twelve-year-old boy. The statement said that all five people were taken to the local hospital without causing life threats.
When the shooting began, Latoya Carpenter, 39, was passing by the Dollar General. A bullet hit her in the head, causing her vehicle to collide with a car parked near the store. The carpenter was pronounced dead at the scene.
No suspects were detained. The shooting is under investigation.
