CDP Debunks Internet Rumors About OSU Student's Shooting Death

Columbus Division of Police

Columbus Police Chief Thomas Quinlan says a social media rumor about a weekend murder in the OSU campus area is false.  

23-year-old Chase Meola was shot and killed Sunday. Quinlan debunks rumors that his death was related to gang activity.  He says the shooting stemmed from a fight when several people were asked to leave a party. The suspect, 18-year-old Kintie Mitchell Junior, is scheduled for arraignment today. Court records show Mitchell was free on bond at the time of the shooting. 

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.
