By June 24, 2019 Press Releases

Columbia Police Chief W.H. ‘Skip’ Holbrook announces that CPD investigators are releasing a composite sketch of what a shooting suspect may look like in an effort to identify the man.

The sketch, courtesy of a forensic artist with the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) was made possible with the assistance of a crime witness.

At approximately midnight on June 19, 2019, CPD officers were initially dispatched to the 4400 block of Blossom Street. Upon arrival, they located the 27-year-old male victim outside of an apartment complex with an injury to the lower body. The victim continues to receive medical treatment at a local hospital.

Witnesses reported hearing the victim and an unidentified male arguing moments before the shooting occurred.
