Glenwood Community Center shooting – Trail of blood at Ohio cooling center leads cops to 3 victims with woman killed | The Sun

GUNFIRE erupted at a community center where families had gathered to escape the heat in Ohio on Wednesday.

A woman is dead after a trail of blood led cops to three victims at the Glenwood Community Center in Columbus.



Cops arrived at the Glenwood Community Center to find two people had been shot.

Columbus Police Assistant Chief LaShanna Potts said cops who arrived on the scene followed a trail of blood to the third victim.

Two of the victims were female and one was a male.

One of the female victims died from her injuries.

The victims were all in their late teens or early adult years, cops said.

No motive for the shooting has been revealed.

Police are exploring the possibility that there may have been multiple shooters.

Witnesses told a local ABC affiliate that an argument unfolded in the parking lot of the center, resulting in shots fired.

"Tragically, when arguments turn to violence, violence turns to using weapons, this is what you have," Potts told the outlet.

Heartbreaking video from outside the center showed a dad crying after he was reunited with his daughter following the shooting.

The community center was being used as a cooling center as a heatwave continues to affect the region.

Over 117,000 residents across the state of Ohio lacked power as of Wednesday evening.

"It's 90 degrees so all the cooling centers were filled to capacity and so as I've said, unfortunately when you have people who handle problems with a weapon, we're going to see this," Potts said.

Potts did stress that the cooling centers are safe, but that "we want you to leave your guns at home."

Anyone with information about the shooting is urged to contact police.
