Is your home an attractive target for burglars? Help protect it from criminals with these nine tips

A Columbia woman passed away Saturday morning following a week fighting a gun shot wound in the upper body. She died while hospitalized, Columbia police says.

Now, the Columbia Police Department is shifting its investigation of the shooting from attempted murder to murder. In that investigation CPD says it’s “working strong leads.”

Last week, police released a sketch of the suspect following the Oct. 5 shooting of the woman at the Waverly Place apartment complex off Two Notch Road.
