DELAWARE COUNTY, Ohio (WCMH) — A suspect is in stable condition Friday after Columbus police were involved in a shootout along Interstate 71 north of Columbus.

CPD said Saturday two people were taken into custody, the suspect who was hospitalized and a second person who was in the vehicle with the suspect at the time of the shooting.

The northbound lanes of the freeway were closed north of Polaris Parkway about 10 a.m. after police say they responded to an active-shooter situation, which was followed by a report of an officer-involved shooting. The lanes reopened about 5 p.m.

Warning: The video below shows the suspect being shot by police

The suspect began firing at vehicles on I-71 around 9:56 a.m. after crashing a 2014 Ford Fusion into a cable barrier on the left side of the roadway, the Ohio State Highway Patrol reported, with multiple calls made to 911.

Columbus police arrived on the scene, and a brief shootout ensued that multiple people recorded. The suspected shooter was seen running in the northbound lanes as police cars slowly approached him. He exchanged gunfire before falling to the pavement after apparently being struck. One of the videos was sent to NBC4, and a second was circulated on social media.

Police said one officer was taken to a hospital for precautionary reasons and that the suspect was originally in critical condition after being taken to Grant Medical Center.

The Highway Patrol and CPD said the same vehicle was involved in a hit-skip about 20 minutes earlier on I-70 in western Franklin County. A woman was in the vehicle, too, Columbus police said.

CPD said Saturday that the suspect and the woman who was in the vehicle are both in custody.

No injuries were reported from either scene, although Columbus Police Sgt. James Fuqua said several vehicles were damaged by gunfire from the suspect, as was a police cruiser.

The state Bureau of Criminal Investigation said it was called out to investigate the incident, as it typically handles shootings involving Columbus police.

The aftermath of the shootout was captured on Ohio Department of Transportation traffic cameras. They showed dozens of law enforcement vehicles and police rerouting vehicles in the northbound lanes onto the southbound lanes.

Northbound I-71 was closed as far south as I-270, with the ramps from I-270 to I-71N also closed. Southbound I-71 traffic in Delaware County was backed up for miles but getting by with lane restrictions.

From Columbus, the closest entry point to I-71 north of the city is at the U.S. 36/State Route 37 exit near Sunbury. That exit can be reached by first taking State Route 3 into Sunbury, U.S. 23 toward Delaware or, from the Polaris area, Old State Road or Africa Road north to 36/37.
