Police responding to a report of a shooting around 9:30 Wednesday night found 45-year-old James Crabtree, Jr. in the street on the northeast side of Columbus. Police said Crabtree appeared to have been shot while delivering pizza.  He had multiple gunshot wounds to his upper body and was pronounced dead at the scene.
