'This is unacceptable:' What we know about Tuesday's triple homicide near Canal Winchester

Sorrow and outrage are mounting Wednesday morning after three people, including two children, were fatally shot inside a vehicle Tuesday night on Columbus' Southeast Side near Canal Winchester.

Police identified the victims early Wednesday morning as 22-year-old Charles Wade; 9-year-old Demitrius Wall'neal; and Londynn Wall'neal, a 6-year-old girl.

As Columbus Assistant Police Chief LaShanna Potts spoke during a media briefing Tuesday night in the entrance at the 6600 block of Kodiak Drive at the Winchester Lakes Apartments.

“They are babies. They deserve to be here. This mother is grieving, this family is devastated,” Potts said. “…There is nothing I can say to this family that will bring them closure.”

Why were the victims shot?

Police say they don't know an answer to this as of early Wednesday morning.

In a release Wednesday morning, police said two armed suspects approached a vehicle where the victims say and fired shots “without any apparent warning or provocation.” A third suspect was waiting in a nearby vehicle and drove the shooters away, police said.

Police: Fourth victim was transported to the hospital

A police dispatcher said a fourth person was transported in a Columbus police vehicle to Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center from the scene, but had no additional information on that person's condition or if the person was shot.

Columbus Division of Police Assistant Chief LaShanna Potts, center, speaks with media at the scene of a triple homicide in the 6500 block of Kodiak Drive on the southeast side.

What police are saying about the incident

“We have two young kids who have been murdered,” Potts said. “This is unacceptable. I am pissed. It's getting tiresome. This gun violence has got to stop.”

She added that Columbus police are actively seeking suspects responsible for the killings.

“We will find these monsters,” she said. “We cannot allow this to continue.”

Columbus shootings rise past record

The three slayings Tuesday night have raised the total homicides in Columbus to 186. That's a single-year record for the city that may continue to climb with more than three weeks left in 2021.

Which department should you call to report homicide tips to Columbus police?
