Police: 2 men charged with murder in Ohio woman’s shooting

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Police say two men have been charged with murder in a shooting that killed one woman and injured another in Ohio’s capital city.

Columbus police say Rayshawn Jami Penn and Rico Brown Sr. are charged in the shooting that killed 25-year-old Champaine Adkins and wounded 18-year-old Charisse Hampton. Police say the two women and Brown were struck by bullets in a gunbattle Sunday night between Brown and Penn in the parking lot of an apartment complex.

Adkins was found shot in a car just south of the complex and died at a hospital. Hampton was treated and released.

Police say Brown was hospitalized in critical condition. Penn was being sought Tuesday on an arrest warrant.

Court records don’t list attorneys for the two men.
