9 kids shot outside gas station in Columbus Georgia


Nine kids, all under 18 and the youngest five years old, were injured in a late-night shooting on Warm Springs Road in Columbus, Georgia, Friday night.

Columbus Police Department Patrol Unit was sent to the Shell Gas Station around 10:11 pm on the 4400 block of Warm Springs Road about reports of a shooting.

When officers arrived, they located several gunshot victims and a large crowd.

The victims gender and age was released below:

  • Male, 5
  • Male, 12
  • Female, 13
  • Female, 13
  • Male, 13
  • Male, 14
  • Male, 15
  • Male, 15
  • Male, 17

The victims were treated at a local hospital for non-threatening injuries and four of the nine children have been released from the hospital.

A preliminary investigation reveled that there was a party down the street where an altercation took place that then led to the Shell Gas Station leaving nine children injured, according to Chief Freddie Blackmon.

The entire Shell Gas Station off Warm Springs Road in Columbus was blocked off with crime scene tape Friday night as dozens of law enforcement officials from the Columbus police department and Muscogee Sheriff’s office were on scene.

On Saturday morning, authorities were back at the scene where the shooting took place… taking pictures, conducting interviews and blocking off areas back up with crime scene tape.

The youngest of them all, the 5-year-old was at the gas station with a family member and was not at the location where the party took place, according to Chief Blackmon.

No arrests have been made at this time.


  1. I really hope they find whoever did this real soon. How do these people get all these guns that is on the street? Why would you just want to go out and harm innocent people is beyond me. People are just crazy these days. They think they in the wild,wild west.
