Two juveniles were injured by gunfire following an incident in East Columbus on Wednesday evening.

According to Columbus Police Chief Fred Shelton, an altercation between persons that knew each other led to the shooting.Three persons were arrested and charged with aggravated assault following the shooting in the 600 block of Cypress Street in East Columbus.

Both of the victims were taken to the hospital by private car, and police were called. One of the juveniles was taken to a trauma center by helicopter, and the other victim was treated and released,” Shelton added.

Arrested were Jessie Levar Walker, Antonio Lamar, and Christopher Jordan Denman, all of Columbus and all charged with aggravated assault.“We are still sorting through the details, but we did recover two weapons. Neither of the juveniles was charged,” Shelton said.

Police were called to the hospital about 7:30 p.m.
