A suspect shot at a woman’s car five times in a dispute over its use Wednesday night, Columbus police said.
The 43-year-old woman told officers that she was sitting in her car at 1420 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. around 8:15 p.m. when the suspect fired a 9 mm Luger at her 2000 Chevrolet Astro. She was uninjured, reports state.
The woman was visiting a friend when an acquaintance approached and asked to use her car to two hours. She gave him the keys in exchange for $20 worth of crack. The man and a friend then drove off around 6 p.m., police said.
They returned at 8 p.m. and asked to use the car for another hour. The woman declined, and her acquaintance handed her the keys. She then got in her car and was about to leave when the man’s friend pulled out a gun and started shooting. The pair ran east after the shooting, police report.
The woman couldn’t remember the shooter’s appearance or what he wore, reports state.
The case remains under investigation.
