Columbus Police are searching for a 50-year-old man accused of shooting two of his adult children on the city’s northeast side on Sunday.

Columbus police say Robert Brigham shot his son and daughter during a domestic dispute. Both victims are in their 20s.

The shootings were reported in the 4100 block of Grayfriars Lane. Police say officers were flagged down at the intersection of Morse Road and Cleveland Avenue by a woman who was riding to a hospital in the same car as the victims. 

The son was reportedly shot in the chest. He was taken to a hospital in critical condition but has since been upgraded to stable. The daughter was shot in the neck. Her condition was stable.

Police say Brigham should be considered armed and dangerous.
