BOONE COUNTY - Boone County Detective Tom O'Sullivan confirmed Wednesday a man has died in an apparent shooting.

The alleged weapon was a pistol, and a female suspect is in custody.

Boone County Sheriff's Deputies and Columbia Police responded to shots fired off of Wagon Trail Road around 7 p.m.

The suspect was identified as a 36-year-old woman and the victim as a 47-year-old man.

The victim was found in a mobile home on Gaslight Court, a small side street off of Wagon Trail Road north of Columbia city limits.
