Neither gunshot victim resided at the house in the 1500 block of Cody Street, just off North Main Street and about a mile northeast of Columbia College, according to a press release authorized by Chief William “Skip” Holbrook.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene, and the wounded woman was taken to a local hospital with injuries that hospital staff told police do not appear to be life-threatening.

Richland County coroner Gary Watts is expected to identify the deceased man later.

Holbrook is asking residents with information about this shooting to contact Crimestoppers to make an anonymous top.
