A 21-year-old Columbia man shot someone at a barber shop on Beltline Boulevard Saturday night, then crossed the street to his apartment and was shot in the chest and killed, Interim Columbia Police Chief Randy Scott said.
Kortney Bryant, of 320 S. Beltline Boulevard, died shortly after he was shot, Richland County Coroner Gary Watts said. Bryant had earlier shot someone at a barber shop at 307 S. Beltline Boulevard, Scott said. That victim, who has not been identified, is recovering at the hospital.
