Columbus Police Report Officer-Involved Shooting


A man is hospitalized in critical condition after he was shot by Columbus police. 

Investigators say 36-year-old Kenneth Chandler unsuccessfully tried to rob a Cleveland Avenue restaurant at gunpoint Friday morning, before attempting to carjack an employee in a city vehicle. Officers eventually caught up with the armed suspect and opened fire. No one else was hurt. Formal charges are pending.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
