OH Man Shoots, Kills Boyfriend In Apparent Self-Defense


The National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs (NCAVP) is reporting that Jeffrey Caldwell, 56, was shot and killed by longtime boyfriend John Reed, 54, on April 6 after a heated exchange.  The incident happened at their home in Columbus, OH, some time just after 10pm on Friday night. After shooting Caldwell in the chest, Reed called emergency services and told a 911 dispatcher that his partner “was trying to kill me.” Despite Reed’s claim of self-defense, Franklin County Municipal Court has charged him with murder.
