Columbus police looking for suspect in overnight shooting

Columbus police are looking for a man suspected of shooting and attempting to rob another man Wednesday night.

The man was near intersection of 2nd Avenue and 38th Street at around 10 p.m. when the suspect, Eric Abdo, attempted to steal a Kirby vacuum cleaner from him, valued at about $1500, Lt. Steve Cox said.

When the man wouldn't give him the vacuum cleaner, Abdo allegedly shot the man in the shoulder, Cox said.

Police are still looking for Abdo.
