On 9/16/15 at 11:12 P.M., officers were dispatched to the 300 block of Dorothy Dean Drive in reference to a law alarm. When officers arrived they found one male, 27, and one female, 22, subject with apparent gunshot wounds.
Preliminary investigation revealed two to four male suspects forced entry into the residence. The suspects proceeded upstairs where shots were fired at the two victims. It is unknown at this time what caused the gunfire to start, but multiple shots were fired. Bullets traveled through the walls of the house and struck another nearby residence, entering the home. There were no further injuries inside the second home. The victims were transported to a local hospital for treatment. Their current condition is unknown at this time. The investigation is on-going.
The Columbia Police Department Criminal Investigations Division is working the case and asks that anyone with information regarding this incident please contact the Columbia Police Department, or call CrimeStoppers at (573) 875-TIPS to remain anonymous.
