Columbus police say they’re getting frustrated at a lack of cooperation from the nine victims in a Sunday morning shooting at a rented party hall. For Ohio Public Radio, WOSU Steve Brown reports.

Police say neither witnesses nor victims have cooperated in the investigation of the shooting inside the J & R Party Hall on Cleveland Avenue. Police say at least two suspects fired dozens of shots inside the hall in Columbus’ South Linden neighborhood. Nine people were shot, but police spokeswoman Denise Alex-Bouzounis says they don’t want to talk.

The Franklin County coroner has released the autopsy report for a 13-year-old boy fatally shot by Columbus police two months ago.

The report lists the Sept. 14th death of Tyre King as a homicide caused by thee gunshot wounds: one to the chest, one to the abdomen and one to the head.

Officers say King was a suspect in an armed robbery and pulled what appeared to be a gun from his waistband after a foot chase. That gun turned out to be a BB gun that police say looked nearly identical to the service weapons used by Columbus police.

Democrats in the Ohio Legislature say the opioid -abuse crisis is so bad that all state lawmakers should be called together at the Statehouse to deal with it. 

Columbus police report they’ve responded to 35 suspected heroin overdoses in 24 hours. In 27 of those cases, paramedics were able to administer a drug that prevents some deadly overdoses.
