Kemyre Abraham Homicide

 This week’s “Crime of the Week” focuses on a Homicide that took place in Columbus.

On July 8, 2022 at approximately 1:21am Kemyre Abraham was exiting the Speedway store located at 2875 Stelzer.  Mr. Abraham was approached by an unknown male on foot.  There was an interaction between Mr. Abraham and the unknown male that continued to the driver’s side of Mr. Abraham’s white, 2000 Lincoln LS.  Mr. Abraham backed his car out of the parking space in front of the store and the unknown male ran behind the vehicle and to the passenger’s side.  The unknown male appeared to attempt to open the passenger door, and when he could not do so, he jumped on top of Mr. Abraham’s vehicle.  The vehicle was still moving at that time and it looked as if Mr. Abraham was attempting to drive away.  While on top of the moving vehicle, the unknown male fired multiple shots into the vehicle through the partially opened sunroof.  The unknown male then fell/jumped from the car and ran south bound from 2875 Stelzer Rd.  Mr. Abraham had been struck multiple times in his upper body by gunfire and traveled a short distance south on Stelzer Rd before coming to a stop.  Mr. Abraham was located unresponsive by CPD Patrol units and transported to Grant Medical Center by CFD personnel.  Mr. Abraham died as a result of his injuries.

Evidence was obtained at scene, but as of now, the suspect is unidentified.
