COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – Columbus Police continue to call on anyone with information about the shooting deaths of two young children and a young man on the southeast side of town to come forward.
“I have seen many homicides over the past 33 years,” Deputy Chief Tim Becker said. “This one stands out. They are children slaughtered in a car, helpless. Anyone who wouldn’t be outraged by this, I think they need to rethink their moral compass. “
On Tuesday evening, police were called to Kodiak Drive where they found Londynn Wall-Neal, 6, Demetrius Wall-Neal, 9, and Charles Wade, 22. All three were later pronounced dead.
Police said the three victims were sitting in a vehicle when two suspects approached and started shooting. Detective Terry Kelley, the lead detective in charge of the case, said earlier this week that it was a targeted assassination.
According to Becker, some advice has been given and more is still needed.
“Some people are coming forward,” he said. “We need more people to come forward. All without a spy – they are children murdered in a car. It’s just crazy to me that anyone thinks that no cookie code is more important than the lives of these children.
Anyone with information about this case can share it with the CPD Homicide Unit at (614) 645-4730, Central Ohio Crime Stoppers at (614) 461-8477, or Det. Kelley at (614) 778-9706.
