Columbia police identify second suspect in October shooting

A 20-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a shooting on Business Loop 70 East in Columbia on October 20.

Gerrell Eugene Lawrence is charged with armed criminal action, first degree assault, and unlawful use of a weapon. His bond is set for now at $4,500.

A warrant for his arrest has been out since the beginning of November.

Authorities arrested Lawrence Friday at 11:19 p.m near Whitegate Drive.

Jeremy Nash, the first suspect from Columbia, was arrested at 1:44 a.m. at 3102 Alpine Drive on October 21.
