Man dies, woman injured in Columbus shooting

Published:

COLUMBUS (AP) -- Police say a Columbus man has been killed and an unidentified woman is in critical condition after both were shot on the city's East side.

Thirty-nine-year-old Michael L. Cumberland was found dead around 11:30 a.m. Sunday on the front porch of a Berkeley Road home. A second victim, who was female, was found inside the residence and transported to Grant Medical Center Hospital, where she underwent emergency surgery.

Police have no known suspects and are unsure of what motivated the attack. It was the city's 55th homicide this year.

The incident followed the fatal shooting of 26-year-old Dominic McCoy in Cincinnati at around 10 p.m. Saturday.

A female victim also suffered gunshot wounds in that attack, which took place in the 1900 block of Millvale Court.
