Man shot at Foxy Lady Lounge

A Columbus man is in critical condition at The Medical Center after he was shot at a nightclub early Saturday morning.

Dimarcus Shelling, 28, was shot multiple times in the head, stomach and leg after being involved in a fight at the Foxy Lady Lounge on Victory Drive, Columbus police Lt. Charles Kennedy said.

At around 2:20 a.m., police received a call in reference to a fight at the club.

Shelling and the suspect in the shooting were involved in a fight with several other people outside that escalated once it made its way inside the club.

"Basically, it turned into a free-for-all," Kennedy said.

The suspect was hit on the head with a beer bottle, left the club and returned with a gun.

He shot Shelling multiple times before fleeing the scene.

Police are still looking for the suspect in the shooting, who is described as a black man, about 20 years old and about 6-foot-2-inches tall with a thin build. He has a goatee and was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and black pants.

Anyone with information on the case can contact Columbus police at 706-653-3400.
