Drive by Murder suspect seeking Revenge killed innocent Woman

Takelia Johnson was shot dead September 3rd on Ewart Avenue

A drive by shooting death was an act of revenge according to Columbus Police.

A police detective testified during a preliminary hearing Adrian Harris was on a mission to avenge his own brother’s murder but he killed the wrong target.

Investigators said 19 year old Takelia Johnson was with the alleged intended target Aubrey Crittenden on Ewart Avenue at the time of the drive by shooting September 3rd. 

Both were shot but Crittenden fled on foot and Johnson was pronounced dead on the scene.

An eyewitness told police Adrian Harris, a convicted felon,  was the gunman and Kumane Ford was the getaway driver.

In a bizarre twist, Ford met his own fate November 7th on Sherwood Avenue where he was found shot to death in Columbus.

Two women appeared in court to offer an alibi for the suspect who claimed he was at Captain D’s at the time of the shooting and only learned about the shooting through social media reports.

One of the witnesses said she had at least five jailhouse conversations with Harris.

Prosecutor Don Kelly asked the woman how many times they discussed Adrian Harris’ alibi which she denied.

The jailhouse calls are recorded and could be introduced as evidence.

Judge Julius Hunter told Defense Attorney his arguments including any alibi should be reserved for a jury and denied bond.
