The first homicide of the year claimed the life of 22-year-old Dominique Horton on Jan. 5 in the 3000 block of 32nd Avenue in south Columbus.

On Monday, another shooting claimed the life of 17-year-old Destiny Nelson at Bull Creek Apartments. According to police, the shooting was in retaliation for the killing of Horton.
