Two People Shot During Assault on Officer


Columbus Police are still investigating an assault and police involved shooting on the city’s south side.

At some point the door was opened then shut on the officer who was pinned between the door and the door frame. The officer gave numerous commands to open the door before firing multiple shots which ultimately freed him.

A man and woman in the house were shot and transported to Grant Medical Center in stable condition. The man, identified as Brian Bates, was admitted to the hospital with a gunshot wound to the neck. The woman was treated and released with a gunshot wound to the arm. The officer was treated and released with a possible broken hand from being pinned in the door.

Numerous people were removed from the house and interviewed by investigators. Brian Bates is charged with one count of Felony Assault on a Police Officer.

Pedestrian Safety Tips


In response to the recent accidents involving pedestrians being struck by vehicles and the changeover from daylight savings time, the Columbus Division of Police would like to remind drivers and pedestrians to be on the lookout for one another.

It is important for drivers to be especially sensitive to traffic laws and stay alert for the presence of pedestrians during early morning and late evening hours.

Helpful tips for drivers and pedestrians:

• Pedestrians should increase their visibility at night by carrying a flashlight or by wearing reflective clothing.
• Pedestrians should cross the street at a designated crosswalk or intersection.
• Pedestrians should use the sidewalk, but if a sidewalk is not available, pedestrians should walk on the shoulder and face traffic.
• Refrain from using cell phones, checking e-mail, or using headphones when walking or crossing a street. It is illegal for drivers to use these devices when operating a motor vehicle.
• Drivers should be watching for children waiting for the school bus, crossing the street and walking along the roadway. Young children are vulnerable due to their limited sight distance as well as being inexperienced crossing roadways.
• Drivers should watch for children crossing the road during early morning hours as they may be easily blocked from your view due to their height.
• Discuss the rules for crossing the roadway with children and teens.
Remember – slow down and be watchful of pedestrians.
