A man shot in the chest early Sunday at a party house was sent to the hospital in critical condition.
The 24-year-old was at the home of Bolivar Glenn at 5205 Buena Vista Road around 4 a.m. when he was hit, said Columbus Police Lt. Steve Cox.
“There was an altercation,” Cox said. “He was shot in the chest with a large-caliber handgun.”
A private vehicle took the gunshot victim to St. Francis Hospital. Cox said the man underwent surgery.
“I know he’s been in surgery all day long,” he added.
The man was at a party house — a residence turned into a club, Cox said. Several police units were called to the scene after officers learned of the shooting, and Glenn was arrested on a charge of maintaining a disorderly home, Cox said.
“When you charge for people to enter, it’s illegal,” the lieutenant added.
No other arrests were made, and the case is under investigation.
