Authorities report two additional shootings since death

Authorities have linked two more shootings to the ones they already are investigating along a stretch of interstate in the Columbus area. That brings the total number of shootings they're investigating in an area of Interstate 270 to 14.

Each of the new shootings occurred since a woman was shot and killed on the interstate November 25th.

Chief Deputy Steve Martin says a car was shot while traveling east on I-270 on Sunday morning. The second shooting occurred either Sunday or Monday and targeted a house in nearby Obetz and was outside the area of the other shootings.

No one was hurt in either shooting.

Martin says authorities have confirmed that the shooting of the house has been connected to the same gun used in four other shootings.
