Seniors And Cops Dodge Automatic Gunfire On City's South Side

OCTOBER 12, 2021

Perhaps lamestream media didn’t receive a press release.

Perhaps the Columbus Division of Police didn’t issue a press release.

In any case, here is another story you will only see on The Sussi Report.

Around 5:47 last Wednesday evening, officers were dispatched to the area of Yolanda Drive and Edsel Avenue on the city’s South Side. Shots fired.

An undercover unit working nearby quickly arrived on scene, and within seconds, the two officers became targets, caught in a hellstorm of automatic gun fire. A neighbor told The Sussi Report she counted no fewer than 20 shots. (Yes, my sources say it was automatic gunfire).

By the grace of God, none of the bullets hit the two officers or residents, but there was plenty of damage along with a few close calls.

CLOSE CALL! Leroy Simpson says his wife was sitting near the front door of their home when automatic gunfire erupted on Edsel Avenue.

Rounds struck at least two houses on Edsel Avenue including the home of 65-year-old Denise Eggleston. Eggleston pointed out two bullet holes, near a front bedroom window, a bedroom where her husband, at the time of the shooting, was sleeping. Eggleston said it’s the third time in 17 years that her home has been hit by errant gunfire. ”It’s been kind of crazy.” she said.

Errant bullets - at least three of them - hit Eggleston’s next door neighbor’s house.

Leroy Simpson, 80, told The Sussi Report that at the time of the shooting his wife was sitting in a reclining chair near the front door. “She said she just heard a ding, ding, ding.” The sound of bullets striking their ranch home where Simpson said they have lived for the past 52 years.

According to the police report, bullets hit four parked vehicles including one with a woman sitting behind the wheel.

There’s been no arrests in this case.
