Columbia Police released surveillance video on Wednesday of a shooting in Five Points that happened around 1:15 a.m. on Saturday, August 5. They hope someone can help identify the man seen in the video shooting a weapon into traffic.
The video shows a man, across Harden Street from the point of view of the camera, walking down the sidewalk near the Food Lion. A light-colored truck drives past on his side of the street and he springs into action, pointing a gun and firing multiple times. He sprints off the sidewalk into the street, continuing to fire as he crosses the road to the median and then out of the view of the camera.
Police believe the truck may have been the intended target. At this point, police do not believe the gunfire injured anyone or damaged any property.
If you can help in the investigation, you are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
