OSU Student Shot Saturday Following Argument

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ohio -

An argument concluded in a shooting that sent a 22-year-old to hospital with a chest wound.

Columbus police say the shooting occurred at about 11:30 inside a vehicle near Third and Washington avenues.

The victim, Nicholas Petrosino, was a passenger in the vehicle when he was shot. 

Detectives say he and the driver allowed a third man into the vehicle and that there was an argument, which ended with the third man firing a gun and leaving the vehicle.

The vehicle with Petrosino in it drove away toward Indianola Avenue near the victim's home where the occupants called police.

Officers say the victim's girlfriend was called and she took Petrosino in her car and headed for an emergency room. Dispatchers called the woman while she was driving and advised her to pull over and wait for medics to make the transport.

Officers said Petrosino was in stable condition and were waiting to interview him to get a firm description of the shooter. 

Officers say witnesses near the scene of the shooting confirmed they heard a shot and yelling at that location about eight minutes before the call for help came from the location on Indianola Avenue. Witnesses reported seeing someone getting out of a silver vehicle with a gun and running away.

So far, no one is in custody and the investigation continues.

Petrosino's girlfriend told police he was a pre-med student at The Ohio State University.
