Crimestoppers: Harden Street Attempted Murder Suspect Identified

By April 29, 2019 Press Releases

Columbia Police Chief W.H. ‘Skip’ Holbrook announces that investigators have identified the male suspect accused of injuring two people in an overnight shooting.

CPD has outstanding arrest warrants for Marlon Adam White. Once located, he will be charged with Two Counts of Attempted Murder and Possession of a Weapon during a Violent Crime in connection with the shooting incident that occurred shortly before 2:00 a.m. April 28, 2019 at 632 Harden Street (The Cotton Gin).

The warrants have been entered into the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) database.

Investigators are releasing surveillance pictures of White that were obtained from multiple surveillance cameras in the Five Points Entertainment District in an effort to locate him.

The isolated incident stemmed from an argument between the suspect and an employee after the suspect was told to leave the incident location.

As suspect White was being escorted out of the business, he’s accused of shooting the employee in the leg. As the bullet exited the first victim, it struck the second victim, a patron in the leg. Both injuries are non-life threatening.  It’s not believed that the victims and suspect are acquaintances.

Citizens with information about White’s whereabouts are encouraged to contact Crimestoppers in any of the following ways:
