A 28-year-old man was found fatally shot inside a vehicle that crashed on the Northeast Side on Monday night.
Roddale D. Garmany, of the South Side, was in the vehicle that drove into a ditch at the intersection of Joyce and Windsor avenues around 10:40 p.m., according to Columbus police.
Garmany was pronounced dead at the scene. His death is the city’s 122nd homicide of 2020.
Garmany had been shot and wounded on Feb. 24 when Columbus police officer Sontino Williams responded to a report of a domestic dispute on the 4200 block of Karl Road on the Northeast Side. Initial information provided to police was that Garmany had a firearm.
Garmany fled when Williams arrived on the scene and was found hiding in a dark corner before making a gesture with his right hand, in which Garmany was holding a dark-colored cellphone.
Williams believed the cellphone to be a gun and fired one round, striking Garmany and wounding him. The shooting will be presented to the Franklin County grand jury.
Garmany was the second person to have been found fatally shot inside a vehicle in Columbus on Monday. Shortly after noon, officers found an unresponsive woman inside a parked car in the 3500 block of Alberta Street on the West Side. That woman was also pronounced dead at the scene.
Anyone with information about Garmany’s death is asked to contact the Homicide Unit at 614-645-4730 or leave an anonymous tip with Central Ohio Crime Stoppers at 614-461-8477.
