A 30-minute-long flurry of gunfire across Southside ended with a man being taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound Saturday night.

According to the Columbus Police Department, the first shots were fired around 10:21 p.m. in the area of 15th Street South and Fourth Street South, near the convenience store across from Friendship Cemetery. When officers arrived they didn’t find either victims or shooters.

A little over 10 minutes later police were sent back to the Friendship area when a vehicle parked in a yard was hit multiple times by gunfire. Nobody was injured in this instance, either.

About 10:53 p.m. officers were sent to 801 Military Road in response to a report that someone had been shot. They arrived to find a 26-year-old man who had suffered a gunshot wound, and he was taken by ambulance to Baptist Memorial Hospital-Golden Triangle for treatment.

No arrests have been made, but all three shootings are under investigation. Anyone with any information is asked to call CPD or Golden Triangle Crimestoppers at 1-800-530-7151.
