COLUMBIA - A man was taken away in an ambulance from Long John Silver's off of Business Loop 70 after being shot in the 200 block of Highview Avenue.

The Columbia Police Department said the gunshot victim walked into the restaurant with multiple gunshot wounds on the lower part of his body. Workers then called law enforcement officials around 8 Thursday evening.

Police said the shooting did not happen at the restaurant but did not give information on where it did happen. 

Officers did find a vehicle matching that of the shooters in the drive-thru of the business. When the officers stopped the vehicle, one of the people in the vehicle was arrested for an unrelated matter.

Columbia Police said they are still searching for the suspects.
