An 18-year-old shot at Woodside Apartments Sunday evening had his apartment burglarized around the time of the shooting, police said.
Columbus police say the Spencer High School student is in critical condition at The Medical Center.
Officers responded to the apartments by the old Baker High School around 5:30 p.m. about a shooting. After arriving, they found the teen inside an apartment with a gunshot wound to his lower back.
An ambulance took the teen to the hospital.
Officers later learned that suspects broke into the teen’s Baker Plaza Drive apartment between 5:30 and 11:30 p.m. the same day. They took four Wii games worth $200, reports state.
