Columbia police collected several shell casings in the south part of town, after bullets struck two men there Saturday morning.

Sergeant Don Hawkins tells ABC 17 News someone reported the shooting at 1:53 a.m. Police found two men near the sidewalk of the 3900 block of Peachtree Drive, near the Nifong Square shopping center.
