3 women shot, in critical condition, while attending vigil for dead friend in Columbus


During a vigil for a deceased friend in southwest Columbus, three women were shot and critically injured by Sagittarius Lamar, 29, who fired multiple gunshots from an apartment window. The women, aged between 22 and 26, were transported to Grant Medical Center and later stabilized. The Columbus Police Department is leading the investigation and has filed for Lamar’s arrest on three counts of felonious assault.
On Wednesday night, three women were shot and left in critical condition while in attendance at a vigil for a friend who had passed away in Columbus, Ohio.

The vigil had drawn around fifty mourners to an intersection in the city and began peacefully with people gathered together to pay their respects to their dear friend. However, around two o’ clock in the morning, shots were fired and chaos ensued; three women were shot and left in critical condition. Columbus police are still searching for a suspect.

The women were taken to Mt. Carmel East Hospital where they were admitted. The hospital reported that they are still in critical condition, and their fight for their lives is ongoing.

This evening, another vigil will take place in honor of the three women who were shot. The scheduled march will start at 6 p.m. and will take place at the original vigil location. Local community leaders hope the march will bring recognition to the importance of gun control and the safety of their citizens, and will use the platform to advocate for tighter gun restrictions in Columbus.

Since the incident occurred, the local community has been filled with an emotional impact as well as an overwhelming sense of sadness. Many of those who attended the original vigil have reported being in shock, unable to register what had occurred.

A GoFundMe page has been created to help the families of the women who were shot fund their medical bills and was launched with the hopeful goal of raising $200,000. Additionally, local businesses in Columbus have pledged to contribute by donating matching funds for any dollar raised.

The original vigil and shooting have shaken the Columbus community and it’s clear that thoughts of the incident remain raw and in the forefront of many hearts. With any hope, the march taking place Friday evening will do its part to bring the community closer together.
