COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A man shot and killed a couple and their 7-year-old son and wounded their 12-year-old daughter in their Columbus, Ohio, home Monday before being fatally shot by police responding to the scene, police said. The suspect was shot by officers after a short chase outside the house where the shootings happened, Columbus police said.

Police said Minnifield was stabbed at 1:43 a.m. during a fight outside the Eighty Three Lounge on the northeast corner of of E. 5th and Joyce avenues. According to Columbus police records, Minnifield had been the victim of four other physical assaults that occurred under various circumstances in recent years.

She also was facing trial in Franklin County Municipal Court on charges stemming from three other incidents: an aggravated menacing charge from 2013, a violation of a protection order from January and an assault charge from Aug. 2. In the Aug. 2 incident at an East Side bar, Minnifield was charged with misdemeanor assault after another woman reported “she was attacked leaving a bar and as a result her phone came up missing,” according to a police report. A man who described himself as a family friend said Anderson had lived in the neighborhood about 10 years and was a hard worker who just started a pavement sealing business.
