COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN) -- Columbus police say a man who was shot early Tuesday and later died at a hospital was the victim of an ambush attack.

Davis was taken to Mt. Carmel East Hospital just after 2:30 a.m. by a friend.

Columbus homicide detectives are in the neighborhood, looking for possible witnesses and more clues.
