Shootings task force investigates two early incidents

The task force investigating the outerbelt shootings were called to two separate early morning incidents. A truck driver traveling on I-270 called police and reported someone shot at his rig. Investigators with the task force inspected the truck but could not find any damage or a bullet.

Also this morning a man was found slumped over the wheel of his pick-up truck on alkire road. Police say he was shot in the head. A rescue squad rushed him to Mount Carmel West Hospital.

Even though the highway shootings task force was called to the scene, a Columbus Police spokeswoman says the shooting does not appear related to the 270 shootings.
