Stanley Circle shooting sends one to hospital

A woman is recovering after sustaining a gunshot wound to the leg Sunday after a home invasion – but the suspects forgot their getaway vehicle.

Judy Moore, 56, was wounded after two men entered her home on Stanley Circle, following a friend of the victim. The friend was ordered to the floor, according to reports, and Moore was shot in the leg. The suspects then fled the scene, according to a deputy’s report.

“The suspects fled the scene but forgot to take their vehicle with them when they left,” said Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Michelle Tatum.

Moore was transported to Columbus Regional with non-life threatening injuries, and the suspect vehicle was seized.

The incident is under investigation.
