Canton, OH – Members of the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force (NOVFTF) arrested Travis Ingram Jr., 21. Ingram was wanted by the Columbus Police Department for aggravated murder.
According to the Columbus Police Department, officers responded to the 1600 block of Karl Court in Columbus on a report of a shooting on January 29, 2023. It is alleged that Ingram shot and killed a 37-year-old male, and shot and injured 3 females inside the strip club.
