COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Columbus Police have identified the two men killed in North Linden Friday night.

It happened just before 8pm near the 3100 block of Maize Road. Columbus Police responded to reports of people crying and screaming and glass breaking at a home. When officers arrived, they found 27-year-old Je’Vohn Hill and 26-year-old Jeronn Hill unresponsive and suffering from gunshot wounds inside a residence. Both men were pronounced dead at the scene.

A friend of the family told NBC4’s Shawn Lanier that the men were brothers.

“I have a thirteen year old daughter and she’s scared to death, ” said North Linden Resident Heather Ford. “All of our kids just scared now like we keep them in the house. We don’t know what’s going on. ”
