A Columbus teenager told police he was shot at twice while standing in front of his home Friday.
Police were called to the 3100 block of Doyle Avenue around 9 p.m. to meet with the 15-year-old. Police Lt. Steve Cox said the teen told two officers he was on the street outside of his house when a burgundy SUV pulled up in front.
A man jumped out of the vehicle and tried to hit the victim. Then a second man, armed with a revolver, shot at him twice, said the teen. He was not injured during the incident.
The two attackers fled in the vehicle, which had at least five other men inside.
Never miss a local story.
The teen said he did not know the men and did not know why they would try to harm him.
