COLUMBUS, Ohio (WKBN) – Police have released photos of several persons of interest, wanted for questioning in a Columbus shooting that killed a Girard man.
Police released 12 photos in connection with the homicide of 21-year-old Kevin Sobnosky outside of a Sheetz gas station. Police have said Sobnosky was in a car near the Sheetz on N. Cassady Avenue around 3:50 a.m. Sunday when he was caught in gunfire between two other groups of people.
