Argument ends with shooting

An argument between two homeless men on Tuesday evening sent one to the Medical Center and one to jail.

James Lawrence, 34, has been charged with aggravated assault in the shooting of 64-year-old Vince Middlebrooks. Lawrence has also been charged with unlawful possession of a weapon by a convicted felon.

Columbus police say Lawrence shot Middlebrooks in the parking lot of Country's Barbecue at 1329 Broadway at around 11:30 p.m. Middlebrooks was taken to the Medical Center where he is listed in satisfactory condition.
