Shootings, stabbing mar New Year in Ohio

Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The New Year arrived violently in some parts of Ohio, with a woman stabbed to death in Toledo, three people shot in Columbus and Cleveland reporting its first homicide less than three hours into 2013.

The fatal shooting of a man on Cleveland's east side just before 3 a.m. came as the city recorded a 2-year spike in city homicides last year and in 2011.

Columbus police are investigating two separate shootings early Tuesday in the city, including a double shooting that broke out during a New Year's celebration around 4 a.m. and sent a man and woman to the hospital.

In Toledo police are investigating the death of a 23-year-old woman stabbed in the neck during a large fight at a bar shortly before 2 a.m.
