COLUMBIA - Columbia police officers responded to two separate incidents early Monday morning. 

Officers responded to a disturbance at 1427 Bodie Drive around 1:00 a.m. According to a media release, 24-year-old suspect Stephen Mitchell choked a 23-year-old, pregnant woman.

Following the disturbance, the woman, two children and the suspect's brother were able to exit the house and call the police. Mitchell then barricaded himself in the house with a weapon. The department said Mitchell did not point the weapon at the victims and did not threaten to shoot anyone but himself.

Missouri State Highway Patrol and the Boone County Sheriff's Department attempted to make contact with the suspect using a bullhorn. The attempt was unsuccessful. Columbia police said Mitchell did not pose an immediate danger to others and officers left the home at 4:45 a.m.  A warrant is out for Mitchell's arrest for domestic assault in the second degree.

In a separate incident, officers responded to a home robbery in process in the 2000 block of Carol Drive.

The department said two masked and armed suspects forced their way through the back door of the home. Upon entering the home, one of the suspects shot a male in the leg. The suspects demanded property, but nothing was taken from the residence. The victim was transported by ambulance to a local hospital with a non-life threatening injury.

Police have made no arrests and the investigations are ongoing.
