COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN) --Gun violence touched at least six young lives in central Ohio over the weekend.

A 14-year old boy was the victim of a drive-by shooting Sunday night on the east side, shot in his arm and leg near the intersection of Lilley Ave. and Mound St. Witnesses told police the shots came from someone in a dark-colored SUV or Jeep, who then sped off.

Earlier in the day, three teenagers were hurt by gunfire outside Questions, a club on Columbus's north side near 161 and Cleveland Ave.

Sunday night, there was a fight in the parking lot of a Marathon store at Refugee Rd. and Noe-Bixby Rd involving two juveniles, 15 and 17 years old, and as many as 17 other people.

According to Columbus police, two men with the teenagers tried to leave and were fired upon by Deaunte Bell, 24.

The bullets pierced the rear window of their vehicle, narrowly missing those inside. However, police say one of the bullets hit a baseball cap one of the teens was wearing.

Bell was arrested and charged with four counts of felonious assault.
