Columbus Police are asking for the public's help in locating a man who reportedly shot a 23-year-old multiple times on Winston Road Sunday, police officials said Tuesday.

Lt. Debra Bohannon said officers are searching for 22-year-old Diangilo Bell. He is described as a 5-foot-9 black man who weighs about 155 pounds. He has brown eyes and black hair.

The victim told police that he was visiting a friend on Winston Road Sunday when Bell allegedly got out of a silver sedan and tried to cover his face with a bandana before pointing a revolver at him. When the victim tried to flee, Bell allegedly fired several shots at him.

The victim was hit in the neck, upper thigh and hand. The wounds were superficial.

Bell is wanted for possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and aggravated assault.
