We're following a series of

shootings in Columbus.

The daytime gun battle on a busy

street caught on camera.

Get out of the car!

Shocking new video tonight that

you'll only see here.

Put your hands down!

Get off the bike.

Get off the bike.

Put your hands up!

There's a new effort today

to try to stop all the gang

related violence in our city.

Police have made some arrests

after the killing of yet another

teenager on a Columbus street.

Summer police are dealing with

an unsettling spike

in violent crime.

Spokesperson for governor

meserve says that

these shootings are not

random acts of violence.

"What I want to let

everyone at home know

is that these are targeted acts

of criminals..."

I'm sorry.

I'm getting some breaking news.

Word that a protest...

We're hearing that a protest we

were covering

has escalated into violence.

We're gonna go live now to...

The police have identified

three shooting victims

found behind the sheetrock

of an apartment building

that's undergoing a remodel.

Tragically, we can now confirm

that one of the victims

was an undercover police officer

killed in the line of duty.

Hundreds attended the solemn

funeral procession

of slain officer Hernandez

earlier today.

In his eulogy,

governor meserve continues to

stress that crime is down.

In fact, quote:

"Hype and hysteria are up."

This summer has seen a 24%

increase in shootings

over the last year.

We are just receiving some

alarming news right now.

A shootout is actually erupting.

That's happening...

Where's this happening?

Right now, we're receiving word

of a police chase

that's going on on

interstate 75.

He actually might spin out here.

There are officers, you guys,

right behind him.

All right, it looks like we're

coming to a stop out here.

The guy is getting out

of the vehicle.

The guy is getting out of the

vehicle. He's got a gun.

He's got a gun.

He just got into a Van.

This could end very badly out

here. He's gesturing.

Oh, this is not good.

This is now a hostage situation.

The person trying to get out...

Oh no, he's being dragged.

A guy is being dragged.

This has now turned into

a hostage situation.

Violent crime has increased 18%

this year

with a significant spike

in shootings.

Over 300 shootings this year

with close to 50

gun related deaths.

Local police say that an

abundance of illegal guns

in the hands of gang members

are the cause.

Well, John, the sheriff

has yet to release

an official statement.

But an inside source has told me

that this horrific shooting

is very likely another

gang initiation.

Governor meserve returned to

Columbus today

for a campaign rally where he

continued to stress

that crime is in fact down

across the state.

I am just being told right now

that the third shooting victim

has been pronounced dead upon

arrival at county hospital.

Police have released security

cam footage of the suspect.

A warning to our viewers...

These images may be difficult

for some.

In less than four years,

we've cut this state's homicide

rate nearly in half.

Robbery rate, a third.

Vandalism, auto theft,

crime is down.

But don't ask me.


Look. It's your new boss.

Have we pushed drugs and gangs

out of our neighborhoods?

Together, we've called out the


And together, we'll keep going

into the future.

What about the pipeline?

Well as I've always maintained,

the corner turn oil line

would be a boon

to this state's economy.

Clean water is a human right.

That's why my office

has commissioned its own

environmental review

to compare

with the e.P.A.'S audit.


Mom! Look, you're famous!

They're talking about your


I'm not famous. I'm just

checking the numbers

for the secretary

of somebody famous.

Cuz apparently famous people

cannot do their own math.

Thank you.


Hey, hey, hey.

Look at you.

What, did you lie out?

A little.

Damn. I should go away

more often. Hi.

I missed you, Stan.

So, how did it work out

with your boss?

Not so good.

Well, what do you mean?

I want to hear about you first.

Tell me everything.

How did it go?


I'm just saying it was awesome.

Those headquarters,

it's the real deal.

I loved it.

Oh my god, baby.

Well, so...

So he said I'll call you.

And I said, "what the hell does

that mean, we'll call you?'

and he said, "Stan,

I'll see you soon. Real soon."

So does that mean

you got the job?

I don't know. Maybe.

Oh, that would be so amazing.

I know. California, baby.

Abbie and Mike could come visit.

Bring Jimmy to Disneyland.

I know. It would be so cool.

It'd be awesome.

Where'd you park?

Wait, where did I...

I thought I parked...

It's 3g.



There you go.

Ah, sh*t.


Oh my god.

How'd that happen?

Should I call triple a?

No. I'll do it.

You sure?


Excuse me, ma'am?

Excuse me?

I'm late for my flight. I've got

my kid waiting in the lobby.

I just need three more bucks

for my ticket.

Not today.

Come on, man.

She's about to give it to me.

Get in the car.

Not today.

For real?

For real.


Seriously. Just,

just back off. Okay?


Come on! Let's go! Let's go!

Come on!

Mr. hill,

I'm detective gilmore.

Columbus Metro p.D.

How's that cut?


Cut on your forehead.

Forehead bleeds a lot.

It gets in your eyes and...

But you still got a good look

at the suspect?
