Columbia police investigate two shootings in northeast Columbia

Police are investigating two separate shootings that happened on Rice Road Thursday.

The first call came in around 1:30 a.m. in the 4400 hundred block of Rice Road. There was damage to the wall of an apartment after a bullet went through an exterior wall, went through multiple interior walls before getting stuck in the exterior wall of the next door apartment.

One resident who was home did not want to be identified, but said he woke up to the sound of gunshots. “Wednesday night I was sleeping in my room with my girlfriend and we were awoken by a loud noise,” he said. “And I went around to look around and she found bullet holes. And so we tried to just trace where they went, and they went all the way through my closet, into my brother’s room and went through into the neighbor’s house at the top of the house.”

Another resident in the apartment told Abc 17 this is not the first time she has heard gun shots living in the home. She said she told her landlord Friday morning she will be moving out because she does not feel safe. Residents on the other side of the home said the same thing.

The second call came in around 10:36 p.m. Officers were dispatched to a shots fired call near the 4500 block of Rice Road. In this case investigators found two vehicles damaged by gunfire in the 2100 block of Carol Drive.

No one was injured and no arrests have been made.
