Columbus police have arrested another suspect in a December shooting. Police arrested Miranda Jones, 24, Friday night on outstanding warrants in connection with a shooting that occurred on 17th Avenue on Dec. 22.

Another car pulled up nearby, and a man got out and began firing a rifle. Christopher Mitchell put his car in reverse and slammed into a tree across the street. He ran to his father's house on 16th Avenue, leaving his sister in the car. Residents of the area called the police for help.
