    Man killed during Northeast Side break-in attempt

    Columbus police yesterday identified the victim in a Friday night shooting on the Northeast Side as Charles R. Sprague, 35, of Columbus.

    Sprague was shot while trying to break into an apartment at 5764 Cooper Rd., said detective James Day of the homicide squad. A man inside the apartment fired shots because he felt threatened by Sprague, Day said.

    “It appeared that the victim in this incident was the aggressor and that the shooter was acting in self-defense,” Day said. “He’d actually tried to force his way into the apartment at the back door when this occurred.”

    Sprague was shot outside the apartment, which is in a three-unit building between Minerva Park and Westerville. He died shortly after 10 p.m. at Mount Carmel St. Ann’s hospital.

    Sprague was a registered sex offender with a criminal history that includes a 2006 conviction for gross sexual imposition. He served a sentence of a year and a half at Madison Correctional Institution before his release in November 2007. He was still under the Adult Parole Authority’s supervision, state prison records show.
    Day said the shooter told investigators that he fought with Sprague, who was nearly twice his size, and tried to convince him to leave before firing shots.

    Detectives released the shooter after questioning. The case will be sent to the Franklin County grand jury for review.

    I dislike the term 'shooter' and 'victim' being used in this manner.

    Shooter should be replaced with 'honorable citizen', and victim should be replaced with 'dead dirtbag'. OMOYOMV

    Sounds like he did what he had to do. I personally would not have fought with the individual first!

    I dunno... maybe it means you impose your gross sexual proclivities on another person against their will?

    So this is the type of guy that the parole board said was ready to join society as a decent, honest citizen???? Are the members of that parole board that stupid or are they grossly endangering the public by their incompetence?

    Thankfully the outcome was good as this guy's criminal record won't be getting any longer.
