Columbus Man Charged In Two Fatal Shootings

Detectives in central Ohio suspect the same man was involved in two fatal shootings six days apart. 20-year-old Jonathan Dantzler has been charged with participating in a shooting at an apartment in south Columbus Oct. 30 that left a 39-year-old man dead and a 59-year-old woman critically wounded. A woman also has been accused in that case. Dantzler also was charged with robbing and fatally shooting a 27-year-old man on the east side of the city Nov. 5. All of the charges against Dantzler accuse him of being a member of a street gang. He has not yet been arraigned, and attorney information wasn't available.
