Columbia police investigating downtown shooting that injured one

Columbia police are investigating a shooting that happened downtown early Sunday morning.

Just before 1:30 a.m., police responded to the 1000 block of East Broadway after callers reported hearing shots fired.

Officers found a cartridge casing in the area.

Employees at both Jimmy John’s and Hot Box Cookies told ABC 17 News police closed the section of Broadway around 1:20 Saturday morning. A manager at Hot Box Cookies said his employee closed the store early due to the police scene.

Shortly after the reported shooting, a man arrived at UMC ER in a personal car with a gunshot wound to the shoulder.

He was admitted to the hospital for observation.

Police said the victim was uncooperative and refused to provide a statement.

Police searched the car he was transported in to the hospital and found a bullet in the rear floor board.

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to call Columbia police or Crime Stoppers at 573-875-TIPS to remain anonymous.

(Editor’s note, Oct. 12, 4:55 p.m.: The name of the street police found the cartridge casing has been changed from “Broadway East” to “East Broadway”. Additional information from nearby businesses has also been added.)
