Police Remove Evidence from North Columbus Murder Scene
COLUMBUS (Ken Hines) -- Police are examining evidence gathered from a North Side apartment where a woman was shot to death by an unknown assailant.
Columbus police found Lynne Smith dead of a gunshot wound to the upper body inside her Reflections on the Lake apartment, late Monday night on Roche Dr.
Neighbors heard the shots that killed Smith, 47, but have not been able to help police identify the gunman.
"All of a sudden we heard, boom, boom, boom,boom,boom," resident Sandra Covert said.
Investigators collected bags of evidence from Smith's apartment on Tuesday, including the home's back door, which may have been struck by bullets.
Neighbors hope the evidence gathered from the apartment quickly leads to the identification and apprehension of Smith's killer.
"If there are flying bullets, which isn't the first time it's happened, anyone is a target," Nancy Kohn said.
A block watch currently operates in the area around the apartment complex, according to neighbors.
