Columbus officer shot after active shooter reported at Amazon facility

A Columbus police officer and another person were injured Sunday evening after a shooting on the city’s Far West Side, the second police-involved shooting in as many days.

The shooting happened near the intersection of Georgesville and Clime roads around 6:15 p.m.

Brian Toth, executive vice president of the Fraternal Order of Police Capitol City Lodge No. 9, confirmed that an officer was injured in the incident and taken to OhioHealth Grant Medical Center. The agent’s condition is assumed to be stable.

Toth said he had no immediate update on the condition of the other person who was shot and could not confirm whether the shooting was related to a previous report of an active shooter at the Amazon warehouse in Madison County. The two scenes are about 12 miles apart.

The Madison County Sheriff’s Office said in a post on the department’s Facebook page that officers received a call about a possible active shooter at the warehouse west of West Jefferson on Sunday around 4:40 p.m. The sheriff’s office and West Jefferson Police Department responded and are investigating. No injuries were reported at the warehouse.

On Saturday evening, Columbus police shot and killed a man who police say opened fire on them with a rifle as officers responded to a domestic dispute. Officers found a woman who died after appearing to be shot by the man before officers arrived.

Saturday night near Cleveland, Deshawn Anthony Vaughn, 24, is suspected of shooting and killing Euclid Police Officer Jacob Derbin after police were called to a home on the 300 block of East 211th St. for a disturbance just before 10 p.m., according to the News Channel 5Cleveland. Police described the shooting as an “ambush.”
