Man, 27, fatally shot inside East Wynnton home, coroner says

A Friday shooting on 10th Street in East Wynnton has left a man dead and another charged with murder, Columbus police said Saturday.

Travis Jovan McDaniel, 27, of Columbus was pronounced dead at 9:48 p.m. of a gunshot wound at 2315 10th St. , Muscogee County Chief Deputy Coroner Freeman Worley said. McDaniel’s body will be transported to the crime lab in Decatur for an autopsy.

An investigation led to the arrest of Edward Lominac , 53, police said. He is held without bond on a murder charge in the Muscogee County Jail for a 9 a.m. Monday hearing in Recorder’s Court.

Police were called about 9:06 p.m. to check on a person shot at 2315 10th St. McDaniel was found dead of a gunshot wound at the scene.

The shooting is under investigation by the Homicide Unit. A patrol officer was parked in front of the house where a yellow strip of police tape sealed off the area.

The death is the third homicide in Columbus this year. It follows the Jan. 26 shooting of Henderson Thomas Darrisaw of Fortson, Ga., at 2032 Reese Road. The 29-year-old man sustained multiple gunshots after a dispute broke out with one of about 30 people gathered at the house to celebrate a birthday. No arrest has been made in connection with the shooting.

Anyone with information about the murder of McDaniel is requested to call Police Sgt. D. Wysinger at 706-225-4469 or email dwysinger@columbusga.org.
