Shootings in Columbus

Over ten confirmed so far, one death. The latest hit was yesterday.

From USATODAY.com - More reports of cars possibly shot near Ohio highway:

A law enforcement task force already was investigating the shootings on or near a stretch of Interstate 270, the highway that circles Columbus, and extra law enforcement were sent to patrol the area on Thursday.

The first shooting was reported in May and others had come in the past 6 1/2 weeks in the area just south of Columbus. On Tuesday, Gail Knisley, 62, was killed when a bullet ripped through the driver's door of the car she was riding in on I-270.

Authorities are investigating 10 shootings in all, including one confirmed Thursday, said Franklin County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Steve Martin. Three new reports of cars possibly being shot at were ruled out.
