  1. An officer downtown heard about 10 shots and a vehicle fleeing at a high rate of speed. Moments later there was about 10 more shots close by. A crime scene with shell casings was identified.

    But don’t worry Columbia, when there are shootings downtown the Police say they do not “believe there was a threat to the community.”
