Columbia Police Department (CPD) investigators are working to determine if surveillance cameras can help identify and locate the person responsible for an overnight shooting.
Officers were dispatched to the 900 block of Gervais Street (Social Bar & Lounge) shortly after 1:00 a.m. today for a shots fired call.
When they arrived on scene, they found a 21-year-old male with a gunshot wound to the arm/hand area. Thankfully, his injury does not appear to be life-threatening. Officers applied a tourniquet from their work-issued medical kit and rendered aid to the man. Afterwards, he was taken to the hospital by EMS. No other injuries were reported.
The case is assigned to the Violent Crimes Against Persons (VCAP) Unit. Police Chief W.H. ‘Skip’ Holbrook encourages anyone with information about the incident to contact CRIMESTOPPERS in any of the following ways:
