CPD searching for shooter after dispute over $50 in north Columbia

Columbia police are searching for a shooter who put a bullet through a north Columbia window Sunday evening.

Around 7 p.m. Sunday, officers responded to a call on Lawnridge Court.

Officers, with a shield and guns drawn, went into an apartment looking for a man who fired a gun at his neighbor.

Sergeant Michael Hestir with the Columbia Police Department said a woman called 911 believing the bullet hit her, but instead, it was dirt from the bullet hitting the ground.

The sergeant said shortly after, they received a call about a bullet going through a window two blocks away, on Blue Ridge Road.

Hestir said the shooting spurred from a dispute between the two neighbors over $50.

A woman came out of the apartment the victim identified as belonging to the suspect while police investigated, and police questioned her.

A few residents came back during the investigation and grabbed their things from the apartment complex and left.

One resident who lives farther down the street said police used to come to the neighborhood frequently, but it has been a quiet six months until tonight.

Police said no one suffered any physical injuries in the shooting.
