ONE DEAD AND SIX SHOT at Ohio Vigil Against Gun Violence

One person was dead and six people were shot when an individual opened fire at a vigil in East Columbus, Ohio against gun violence.

LaToya Renee Carpenter, 32, was killed when a gunman opened fire on a group she was with at a parking lot of a Dollar General store last night

NBC4 reported:

Several people who gathered at a vigil were shot and one was killed in Truro Township near east Columbus Saturday night, according to law enforcement officials.

According to the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Chief Jim Gilbert, several people were shot near a store on the 5000 block of Chatterton Road at approximately 7:38 p.m.

Gilbert said people were gathered at a Dollar General parking lot to hold a vigil for someone killed last week.

According to a Columbus Police Department spokesperson, six people in all were shot Saturday night.

People at the scene said that for this type of violence to happen while people were already grieving is unacceptable.
