Associated Press

COLUMBUS: Police say an 8-year-old boy was shot in the head while riding in a car in east Columbus, and a man has been arrested.

Officers said the boy was riding in the back seat of his uncle’s car when he was shot at about 5:30 p.m. Thursday. They couldn’t say where the shooter was positioned when the shot was fired.

The boy, who police did not identify, was in critical condition at a hospital. Three adults and a 6-year-old boy also were in the car but weren’t hurt.

Police arrested 23-year-old Robert Broom and charged him with aggravated assault. It wasn’t clear early Friday if he had an attorney. No other details of the incident were released.
