The Robbery and Assault Unit’s investigation determined that Johnathan Andrew Washington, 35, is a suspect in the shooting that occurred at Big Cat gas station at 1:30 p.m.

The victim rode into the parking lot with a woman, and stayed in the vehicle as the woman went into the store. While in the vehicle, the victim supposedly said something to the suspect as he walked by.

The woman returned to the vehicle and proceeded to take the victim to the hospital, while the suspect left the scene.

This shooting left the victim suffering from a gunshot wound to the face.

On July 14, The Columbus Police Department’s SWAT Team served those warrants, as well as a warrant to search Washington’s home. Washington was then taken into custody.
