Richland County deputies are looking for the driver in this vehicle and two others in connection to a shooting incident on Polo Road Tuesday evening.

Richland County deputies are looking for suspects after people in two cars were seen shooting at one Tuesday evening near a Northeast Columbia park.

Shots were fired abou 6 p.m. near a soccer complex at 930 Polo Road, deputies say. Several shots were fired, but no one was injured. Deputies determined that shots were fired after about a dozen men at a one of the park's parking lot got into an argument. The argument got physical, deputies say, then shots were fired.

Now, deputies say they are interviewing witnesses to see if they can identify the suspects. Some of the witnesses were able to snap photos of the suspects' vehicles after the shooting.

If you know anything about the shooting, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC or www.sccrimestoppers.com.
