Arrest in Homicide at 4257 E. Main St.

On 11/21/18, Mulugeta Shiferaw was found shot to death in the parking lot of 4257 E. Main St. in Whitehall, Ohio.

On 12/03/18, Whitehall Police arrested 57-year-old Woldai Gebremedhin and charged him with the Aggravated Murder of Shiferaw. Gebremedhin, last known to reside in the area of 2300 Cleveland Ave, Columbus, Ohio, has been turned over to the custody to the Franklin County Jail.
