if we put more murders to death in the same manor as the prople they killed we might just see less of this.

I bet it was a gang initiation. Mayor Coleman and CPD need to get a better handle on the crime in Columbus. This is why no one wants to move to the Downtown/Short North areas. Why should I move to a nice building downtown, and get shot? Thanks but no thanks.

How did they not notice a bleeding puncture hole in his upper body? No gunshot heard? This doesn't make sense.

Not all bullet holes bleed....depends on what is hit on the inside. small caliber rounds are very difficult to spot, especially if you have no idea you should be looking for them.

As if shoveling snow isn't bad enough, leave it to the south side to make it worse. This is why I pay kids to shovel mine. Let them take a bullet for ten dollars.

You are right! And even in the high end suburbs, people get shot, burned, run over. This man, seemed to be just doing his daily chores.

What is sadder, is some of the racist comments on this blog. To his family, I wish them a speedy time to recover from this tragic accident. If you ever drive around the south or west end, you will see a number of service vehicles, that "those" people work for, all of them, you need when you heat is out, your plumbing is not working etc.

How is that hopey changey working out for you Obama voters in the city?
LOL.
God bless you sir. Minister Bill Howard would have wanted me to bless you. As he preached that we should bless those who curse us. Sir, even though I find your racist, comments insensitive, I pray that your heart would be lightened and you would recognize that 1.) Not all Blacks voted for Obama. 2.) This could have happened anywhere, not just the inner city (remember Columbine? How about the Menendez Brothers?) Rest In Peace, Minister Howard, You were, are, and always will be "More Than A Conqueror"!!!
