In the past week and half, three people have been killed after a string of shootings in Columbia.

Charges were filed yesterday in the latest deadly shooting on rice road and the shooting during an attempting carjacking at the Wal-Mart parking lot on Conley Road.

One of the most recent shooting was on Rice Road late Sunday night were 18-year old Trevon Ashcraft was killed. The Columbia Police Department arrested three adults and have two Juveniles in custody.

Quanina Lakeitha Lambert, 34, and Jordan Jarodisiah Brantley, 18, both of Columbia, were charged with first-degree assault, second-degree murder and hindering prosecution. Lambert and Brantley are being held in the Boone County Jail.

Shannon M. Glasgow, 33, of Columbia was charged with evidence tampering and hindering prosecution. Glasgow allegedly drove some of the assailants to and from the scene. Glasgow was jailed Tuesday without bond.

While reporting on that shooting from Sunday night, one of ABC 17 News reporters heard several gun shots on Rice Road on Monday. ABC 17 News reporters saw two males run from the area after the shots were fired.

On Friday, 35-year-old Whitney Nevels-McKee was charged with 11 felonies including second-degree kidnapping, two counts of second degree assault, and two counts of carjacking after a shooting in the parking lot of Wal-Mart.

McKee's family said she has schizophrenia. ABC 17 News spoke with McKee's son Chandelle Cadien Marteen about her mental health.

Cadien Marteen said, "we have a mental awareness month and everything like that and still there's so many people that's not in their right minds and things like that so I feel like everybody should really look out for each other, try to not push each other down."

Mckee is being held at the Boone County Jail without Bond and is set to appear in court Wednesday afternoon.

The two bodies found on Ridgemont Drive last week were identified Tuesday as Sara Fox and Marcia Hess who were shot and killed in their home. Randall Fox has been charged with second-degree murder in connection to their deaths.
