Man dies by stray bullet from shooting that also killed teen

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Police in central Ohio say gunfire aimed at an SUV full of teenagers killed one teen along with a man in a nearby home who was likely hit by a stray bullet as he slept.

Columbus police say officers found 33-year-old Severen Clayborn after noticing bullet holes in the home behind where two people opened fire on the vehicle Monday morning. Investigators say the attackers, who fled, used high-powered firearms in the shooting on the city's west side.

The younger victim, 17-year-old Quentin William Smith, was found in an alley and died at a hospital. A Columbus schools spokesman says Smith was a sophomore at West High School.

Police say they questioned two teenage witnesses who were in the SUV and are searching for another teen who was with them.
