Zanesville Police Chief Kenneth Miller says a Columbus man arrested in Franklin County Tuesday is wanted on multiple charges here and is also a suspect in a murder.  Chief Miller says 27-year-old Anthony Wilson was indicted last week in connection with last September’s shooting incident at Hoppy’s on Putnam Avenue.  Zanesville Police say it happened in the early morning hours of a Sunday and four people were shot.  Columbus SWAT team members arrested Wilson around 5 pm Tuesday on robbery charges.  Muskingum County Prosecutor Mike Haddox says Wilson faces four counts of felonious assault with firearm and repeat violent offender specifications and one count each of having a weapon under a disability, tampering with evidence and receiving stolen property-a firearm.  Chief Miller says Wilson is also a murder suspect from a Spangler Drive shooting in January.
