Police in Columbus, Ohio, have issued an arrest warrant for a 19-year-old man on murder charges in connection with a fatal March 28 shooting at Esporta Fitness club on the city's Far West Side. 

According to The Columbus Dispatch, Tae'von Amire Bush allegedly shot Tabias Cunningham at around 8:45 p.m. following a basketball game at the fitness club. Cunningham was transported to the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center where he died of his injuries at 9:37 p.m. 

Cunningham had just finished playing a pick-up basketball game on the court inside the fitness when he was approached by Bush, who had played against him in a previous game. A short argument occurred before Bush pulled a gun from the pocket of his hoodie and shot Cunningham multiple times. 

Police had previously released photos and video of two unidentified men that they were looking for as persons of interest in the case. The men fled the club along with member who had been working out before the shooting. 

Esporta closed the basketball court in the wake of the shooting and has repurposed the space for other fitness activities.
