COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Police say an argument between two men led to a shooting at the Columbus Metropolitan Library’s main branch in the city’s downtown.
Columbus police say the 28-year-old suspect said he fired gunshots at a 47-year-old man after an argument Sunday near a library elevator.
A police report says the suspect then chased the victim through the second level of the library with his gun out. Police say the suspect surrendered when confronted by a library security officer.
The building was evacuated after the shooting around 3 p.m.
The suspect has been charged with felonious assault. An investigation continues.
The victim was hospitalized in stable condition at a Columbus hospital with a gunshot wound in the ankle.
