Two peo­ple are dead in sep­a­rate shoot­ing in­ci­dents that oc­curred within a half-hour of each other in neigh­bor­hoods on the Hill­top and the East Side on Sun­day night.

Colum­bus po­lice re­sponded around 9:20 p.m. to re­ports of shots fired in the 500 block of South Ter­race Av­enue just south of Sul­li­vant Av­enue.

When Colum­bus fire paramedics ar­rived, they tried to re­vive the per­son but pro­nounced the per­son dead at 9:29 p.m.

Then at 9:49 p.m., Colum­bus po­lice and fire units were called to the 900 block of Rarig Av­enue in the Krumm Park neigh­bor­hood on a report of a shoot­ing.

A man was taken in life-threat­en­ing con­di­tion to OhioHealth Grant Med­i­cal Cen­ter. He was pro­nounced dead at 10:13 p.m.

Mean­while, Colum­bus po­lice were look­ing for a pos­si­ble sec­ond vic­tim in the Hill­top shoot­ing.

A man and woman who live near the shoot­ing scene on Sul­li­vant Av­enue said they heard about a dozen gun­shots be­fore po­lice and fire de­scended on the area.

There were a num­ber of or­ange cones in the mid­dle of South Ter­race Av­enue to mark pos­si­ble shell cas­ings.
