On 05/06/2023 at approximately 10:27am, Columbus Police Officers responded to a gas station in the area of 1401 Sullivant Ave. on the report of shots fired. When the Officers arrived they observed glass on the ground and shattered windows. Officers spoke to both victims Khalid Aldakhil and Abdulhussein Al Jamal, who were not struck but were close to the front door where some of the bullets entered the store. Both victims stated a male black entered the store and wanted to buy some items. The victims informed the male suspect that the store was closed for remodeling which made the male angry. Mr. Aldakhil stated the male became angrier because he was asked to leave the store and that is when he threatened to shoot Mr. Aldakhil. Mr. Adlakhil stated he went back to work and was standing by the front door when the male entered a dark colored vehicle. The suspect then began shooting at the gas station before fleeing south bound on Central Ave.
