A man is accused of shooting someone twice in the leg during an argument Friday at Bethel Bishop Chappelle Apartments on Ripplemeyer Avenue, Columbia police said.

Kevin M. Haigler, 19, is at Richland County jail, charged with assault and battery with intent to kill, armed robbery, first-degree burglary and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, a police news release said.

He took an undisclosed amount of money during the 10 p.m. incident and was arrested after being admitted to Palmetto Health Baptist with a gunshot wound to the leg, the release said.

It’s unclear who shot Haigler, the release said.
