Grove City police arrested a Columbus man Oct. 9 on two felony charges after he allegedly fired shots into a house in the 2900 block of Orders Road.
Police received several calls at 9:50 p.m. Oct. 9 that gun shots had just been fired. Officers responded and were told by a resident that she was in her bedroom when she heard what sounded like shots occurring about two seconds apart. She said she started to walk down a hallway when several more gunshot-like noises sounded in rapid succession and she felt debris hit her hair, reports stated. She went back to her bedroom, hid in a closet and called police.
Officers found 12 empty .40-caliber shell casings on the driveway and at least 10 apparent bullet holes in the front-door window and main window of the house, according to reports. Several other bullet strikes were found inside the house.
Three neighbors told police they observed a man getting into a dark or gray-colored Dodge Charger and driving away.
An officer located a car matching the description at a gas station in the 400 block of Orders Road. He observed a man matching the general description the witnesses provided walk into the station, go to a rear corner of the store, pause at one of the shelves, then walk out of the building.
The officer searched the area of the store where the man had paused and found a .40-caliber handgun on the shelf, according to reports.
The man, identified as Mustafa J. Mohamed, 28, of Sharon Green Drive, was taken into custody and charged with improperly discharging a firearm at or into a home and handling weapons while under disability.
