A woman was reportedly shot near Ohio State’s campus on Monday night.
Columbus Division of Police were dispatched to the area of Summit Street and East 11th Avenue at about 8:45 p.m.
The victim, 21-year-old Mikaylla Woods, was taken to the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center in critical condition, according to a Columbus Division of Police press release.
Woods was shot in the chest inside her residence, but the suspect remains unknown, the release said. She is now in stable condition.
The Lantern was unable to confirm as of Monday night whether Woods is an OSU student.
Police tape surrounded the perimeter of a Marathon gas station at the corner of Summit Street and 11th Avenue. A gas station employee, who would not provide his name, said he did not hear any gunshots, but heard that Woods was shot at a separate location and then collapsed in the gas station parking lot.
Two OSU students who live on Summit, but would not provide their names, said they saw Woods lying on the pavement in the Marathon parking lot, but did not hear any gunshots.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call detective Kenneth Trivette of the Columbus Police Assault Unit at 645-4044 or the Central Ohio Crime Stoppers at 645-TIPS.
