Cops Investigating Shooting

***UPDATE 11:32 P.M.***At this point, investigators do not know what the shooting was about, and can’t say if anyone was being targeted.No matter the target, police told ABC 17 News a shooting like this is dangerous to everyone in the area because a bullet has no name on it.”It’s always concerning when someone shoots into a dwelling or a dwelling is hit by gunfire,” Sgt. Paul Dickinson with the Columbia Police Department said. “It’s a concern to us as well.”A neighbor who wished to remain anonymous said, “You know somebody could have died tonight and it’s just ridiculous that people have to resort to things of this sort just to make a point or whatever the case may be. Who knows what this is over but this is just, stuff is getting out of hand and it’s got to stop.”Neighbors told ABC 17 News shootings like this are all too common in the area.
