Two men shot in Columbus

A 19-year-old man and 16-year-old boy were shot at the Booker T. Washington Apartments late Monday evening and a suspect has been arrested.

Arrested by Columbus police was 34-year-old Quentin Ladale Brown who will receive a hearing in Recorder's Court Wednesday at 8 a.m.

The adult victim was Marchello Deon Tripp who was shot in the right side. The youth was shot in the left thumb. Both were treated at The Medical Center and released.

The incident, which occurred at 11:35 p.m., is said to have happened when the victims along with two other males came to talk to Brown about a fight he was involved in last weekend.

Police say Brown shot both victims with a .380 pistol which was later recovered.
