COLUMBUS, Ohio – Columbus police are looking for a man who has reportedly been accused of shooting his nephew to death while the boy was riding in a car on a Southeast Side street last week.

Jamarion Cox, 8, was hit in the head by a bullet fired while the car he was riding in with three adults and another child was driving westbound on Roswell Drive, west of Courtright Road, just after 5:30 p.m. on April 10, homicide detectives said. He was taken to Nationwide Children’s Hospital where he died Monday, police said.

Police haven’t disclosed the circumstances of the shooting.

They have identified the suspect as Robert Broom, 23, of Columbus. Police initially reported Broom was arrested on an assault charge, but the updated report on Tuesday indicated a warrant has been issued for his arrest.

That report says investigators expect to charge Broom with murder.

It’s not clear if Broom has an attorney, and court records for the warrant listed none.
