A man shot by a Columbus police officer Tuesday morning is believed to have been involved in a Dublin carjacking.

Officers said they were tipped off that the Dublin carjacking suspect was headed to west Columbus.

WBNS-TV (Channel 10) reported witnesses said a female police officer fired at least six shots, wounding the suspect several times.

Police said the suspect was taken to Mount Carmel West with multiple gunshot wounds.

The injured suspect is believed to have been involved in a carjacking that occurred near Tuttle Crossing.

At 7:45 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 5, Dublin police received a call regarding two suspicious men in the 5600 block of Frantz Road, said Jodi Andes, a Dublin police spokeswoman.

When police arrived a foot chase ensued, resulting in the capture of one of the suspects, Andes reported.

A short while later, the other suspect, 37-year-old Charles Gollihue, allegedly carjacked a black Pontiac Grand Am, Andes said. The victim was unharmed.

Dublin police broadcast a report about Gollihue -- who was allegedly armed -- to area law enforcement agencies.

“Not long after a person matching his description was seen robbing a business at Bethel and Sawmill (roads),” Andes said.

Columbus police called off the search for the robbery suspect after the west Columbus shooting.
