COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — Police have arrested a 28-year-old man who they say fatally shot his 59-year-old father Thursday night.
Thursday night just after 9 p.m. Columbus police were called to the 2000 block of Grasmere Avenue on a report of a shooting.
Officers found 59-year-old Joseph Bythewood who had suffered a gunshot wound to the upper body. He was taken to Grant Medical Center where he later died.
Based on witness reports of an argument between the two, police began looking for Bythewood’s 28-year old son, Joseph Taylor Shine-Johnson.
Johnson was later arrested without incident and charged with the murder of his father.
This is the 68th homicide of 2015 in Columbus.
