Columbus police have charged a 14-year-old boy with shooting and wounding a man who tried to get his cell phone back when the boy robbed him. Police say 14-year-old David Sparks robbed 26-year-old Gregory Wheeler of his phone while the victim and 24-year-old Samantha Haub were playing the Pokemon game in Linden Park last night. Police say Sparks admitted shooting Wheeler when the victim tried to get the phone back. Wheeler is being treated at a local hospital.
