Six people were reported wounded Tuesday night in five separate Columbus shootings — including some minutes apart from each other, city police reported. 

At 6:54 p.m., Dejon Skelton and Khalil Woods were walking along the street near the intersection of Seymour Avenue and East Main Street on the Near East Side when they were shot by an unknown suspect or suspects, according to Columbus police. Both men were struck in the shoulder area and transported to a local hospital in stable condition, police said.

Seven minutes later, police said James Burgett and four other people standing in a front yard on the 300 block of Whitethorne Avenue on the Hilltop at 7:01 p.m. when an unknown suspect fired several shots at them and fled. Burgett was struck in the foot and transported by Columbus Fire medics to a local hospital in stable condition.

At 9:32 p.m., two unknown black males approached and fired gunshots at Bernardo Miguel and another man as they sat in a vehicle near the parking lot of Brightside Academy child care center at 1977 Cleveland Avenue in South Linden, police said.  As the two men fled in their vehicle, more shots were fired. Miguel was struck in the shoulder and was taken to a local hospital in stable condition, police said.

An unidentified person was reported shot about 9:40 p.m. on East 11th Street near Wright Avenue in South Linden, police said. The individual was transported by medics with non-life-threatening injuries to OhioHealth Grant Medical Center, police said. 

Shortly after 11 p.m., police responded to a report of at least one person shot on North Guilford Avenue off West Broad Street in Franklinton. Medics transported one victim in critical condition to a local hospital, police said. 

Police issued news releases Tuesday night on the first three shootings but no additional information was available on any of the incidents, which are not believed to be related.

Anyone with information on these shootings is asked to contact the Columbus Police Assault Unit at 614-645-4141 or Central Ohio Crime Stoppers at 614-461-TIPS (8477).
