Police: One injured in early morning shooting on Vandiver
COLUMBIA - The Columbia Police Department said one person was injured Friday morning in a shooting on Vandiver Drive.
Police said officers were dispatched to 1501 Vandiver Drive at 2:21 a.m. and found multiple bullet holes in a residence. According to officers, a 24-year-old Columbia woman who was inside the residence was injured by a bullet. She was taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
One witness told police they saw three men run from the scene and get in a car, which left going very fast, police said.
Donald Tuggle, who lives two houses down from where the shots were fired, said this kind of behavior is unusual for the neighborhood.
"I've lived here about two and a half years and it's been really quiet until about September of last year. These neighbors moved in then," Tuggle said, referring to the neighbors in lot 244, where the shots were fired and the woman was injured.
Tuggle said he's dealt with disturbances from his neighbors before last night.
"A lot of traffic, loud noises, I've actually come over there and asked them to turn the noise down before. I've made complaints to the office. My kids have found actual nine millimeter rounds on the ground outside in the street here and I've taken it up to the office and multiple loud complaints. I've called the cops two or three times," he said.
KOMU reached out to the office of Vandiver Park, the mobile home park where the shooting occured, but the management refused comment.
CPD said no arrests had been made Friday morning. They urged anyone with information about the shooting to contact CPD or CrimeStoppers at (573) 875-TIPS.
