A nine-year-old boy, his six-year-old sister, and their mother’s 22-year-old boyfriend were gunned down in cold blood Tuesday evening outside the Winchester Lakes apartment complex in Canal Winchester.
Columbus Division of Police say the massacre unfolded around 6:15 on Kodiak Drive. Police say the victims were sitting inside a parked car when a “black” vehicle pulled up and peppered the victim’s car with gunfire. All three were pronounced dead on the scene. Sources tell The Sussi Report that detectives located 57 shell casings.
At this hour, police have no suspects in custody, but sources tell The Sussi Report the attack is gang-related and the 22-year-old man – a well-known rapper - was the intended target.
Sources tell The Sussi Report that the children's mother became so distraught that she attempted to dive into a nearby retention pond. Sources say the woman was transported to the hospital.
