Columbia police were called to the 2700 block of Magnolia Street to investigate a fatal shooting Saturday night.

The call came in to police around 8:40 p.m., Lt. George Drafts, department spokesman, said.

Two male gunshot victims were found by police when they arrived on scene. Both were taken to the hospital where one of the victims was pronounced dead, Drafts said. The condition of the second victim was not available. The victims’ identities had not been revealed by police late Saturday.

Investigators were in this residential neighborhood off Two Notch Road, two blocks from Charles Johnson Stadium, late Saturday night, talking to witnesses and trying to identify a suspect in the shooting.

More details will be reported as they become available.
