Columbus Police Kill Second Alleged Armed Robber In A Week

Columbus police shot and killed a 15-year-old who officials say was armed and suspected in the robbery of a pharmacy  on Thursday. 

At least two officers fired at Abdirahman Salad when they confronted him at the pharmacy on East Broad Street. The death is the second fatal officer-involved shooting of a robbery suspect in less than a week.

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.
