The Columbia Police Department released surveillance pictures to seek help in its investigation of a killing on Queen Street.
Columbia Police Chief Skip Holbrook said investigators want to identify and locate a person of interest captured in surveillance pictures shortly after the Nov. 16 shooting that resulted in the death of Richard Gilmore. The man in the picture is shown walking at the intersection of King and Bratton Streets, Holbrook said.
A second surveillance picture shows a 2008 white Chevy Impala, said Holbrook, adding that the car could help identify the person of interest.
The 40-year-old Gilmore, of Columbia, died of complications from a gunshot wound to the upper body, said Richland County Coroner Gary Watts, who ruled the death a homicide.
Never miss a local story.
Holbrook said officers responded to a residence in the 1100 block of Queen Street, near Santee Avenue, at 1:30 a.m. in reference to the shooting. When officers arrived, they found Gilmore dead on the porch of the residence, Holbrook said.
