A Columbus man was shot outside of a Miller Road auto shop Saturday during a dispute with another man, police said.
The 27-year-old was shot in the right thigh and taken by ambulance to The Medical Center. Police Sgt. Harvey Hatcher said Saturday evening the man’s injury was non-life-threatening.
Police said the victim and another man, Donte Suggs, had gotten into an argument around noon outside of The Tint Shop, a car detailing business in the Miller Crossing shopping center. The victim accused Suggs, 23, of taking his customized jewelry, which went missing after an alleged burglary at the victim’s home Friday, police said. Witnesses told officers the victim punched Suggs in the mouth, then Suggs shot him.
Police are looking for Suggs, who fled after the shooting. An arrest warrant for aggravated assault has been issued against Suggs.
