Shooting in Columbus kills father of six


COLUMBUS, Ohio (WKBN) – Columbus Police are looking for the suspect they think shot and killed a man in front of his wife and six kids in the parking lot of a restaurant.

It happened at Golden Corral near Dublin on Friday around 6:30.

Police say as the family was walking out of the restaurant, a man with a gun came up to the father and shot him in the leg. A family member says the suspect fired again, this time hitting the man in the back.

The suspect then took the victim’s wallet and ran.

The father died at the hospital. His six kids are ages 9 to 14.

Police said the shooter got into a tan, four-door sedan. Investigators are also looking for the driver of the car.
