Residents and family have told The Dispatch that Mohamed came home after classes at Licking Heights High School and then walked to a subdivision to possibly play basketball with friends.

Columbus emergency crews responded after an anonymous call about a drive-by shooting. The teen was pronounced dead at the scene.

A Columbus police homicide supervisor said he couldn't confirm whether Mohamed was killed during a drive-by and wouldn't provide any details about the slaying.

A man who lives across the street from the teen's family said the community is shocked by what happened.
