A West Park Drive man allegedly fired six to eight gunshots outside a relative's West Park Drive residence after family members refused to let him borrow a car, according to a Columbus Police report.

The 24-year-old's aunt told police family members were talking with Dametrias Seldon in the living room of the 1800 block home when he began asking if he could borrow a car. The family refused, causing Seldon to allegedly storm out of the room shortly after midnight.

Not too long after, the victim heard six to eight gunshots fired outside. She locked the door and waited for police.

Seldon is wanted by police for questioning about the incident. He is described as a 6-foot black man who weighs about 170 pounds. He has light skin and short black hair.
