Columbus police have arrested a wanted suspect in a shooting Sunday at a car wash, officials said.

Braylin Christopher Edinburgh, 21, of Columbus, turned himself in to Columbus Police shortly after 8 p.m. Tuesday.

The incident occurred in the car wash parking lot in the 700 block of Alabama Street. Three people were wounded in the shooting. According to police, two of those people are still hospitalized.

The arrest followed an intensive campaign by Columbus police and the U.S. Marshals Office in the street and on social media. A wanted poster was issued by Columbus Police Monday night and generated over 33,250 views on Facebook in the next 25 hours.

“I want to thank the officers and investigators of the Columbus Police Department for the hard work in this arrest,” said Columbus Police Chief Fred Shelton. “I would also like to thank the U.S. Marshals Service for their help in this arrest.”

Edinburgh has been charged with three counts of aggravated assault. Shelton said there is one other person who is charged with accessory after the fact in the shooting.
