A man who died Monday night at a Northeast Side apartment complex has been identified.

Sanjay Karki, 32, was pronounced dead from apparent gunshot wounds at 10:41 p.m., Columbus police said.

The Dispatch originally reported the incident as a stabbing based on police scanner traffic, but Columbus police issued a news release Tuesday that clarified the homicide was actually a shooting.
