One Year Anniversary of Fatal Shooting at LakeShore Village Apartments

July 28, 2020, marked the year anniversary of the fatal shooting of 20-year-old Emmitt Hart at Lakeshore Village Apartments. Columbia Police Department (CPD) investigators continue to ask the public for information to help solve the case.

According to Richland County Coroner Gary Watts, Hart died from multiple gunshot wounds to the upper body. CPD officers initially responded to 7645 Garners Ferry Road on Saturday, July 27, 2019. To this day, people remain reluctant to call CPD or Crimestoppers with valuable information.
