A woman told Columbus police at 1:45 p.m. March 17 that she had argued with a man earlier that day at an apartment on the 500 block of Broad Meadows Boulevard.

The woman reportedly had confronted the man about a theft that had occurred about a week earlier.

The woman told the man she would have her brothers "handle the problem," and the man left, saying he would "come back and shoot the place up," reports said.

At 1:40 p.m., the man returned with three other people, who entered the woman's apartment without permission, according to reports.

The three suspects allegedly assaulted the woman and stole her cellphone.

The man, who was in the rear driver's-side seat of a vehicle outside, then reportedly fired about six rounds from a handgun toward the victim before fleeing.
