JEFFERSON CITY — Police have identified a Jefferson City man who died after a shooting early in the morning on Halloween.

The Jefferson City Police Department says Terrance Davis, 29, was killed after being shot Monday.

Officers responded to a call of shots fired on Michigan Street around 4:30 a.m. At the scene, they found Davis with two gunshot wounds.

The caller said two or three shots were fired after an argument broke out. Detectives found two shell casings.

Cole County EMS crews rushed Davis to a nearby hospital. He was then transfered to a separate hospital in Columbia due to the extent of his injuries, where he died shortly before noon.

Authorities say an investigation is underway to determine any possible suspects.

The woman who called in the shooting was Jeannette Hees. She lives on the street where the shooting occurred.

"I had woken up to go to the restroom and then I heard a shot fired," Hees said.

She said she then heard a man ask "Why? Why are you doing this," before hearing a second shot fired.

Hees said she called 911 and stayed on the phone with someone until they showed up.

The whole shooting was caught on the surveillance video of River City Pawn and Gun. The owner, Jason Travis, said the video shows the whole shooting but lighting and quality are bad.

"You can see the shots fired but you can't really make out much else," Travis said.

He said he's handed the footage over to Jefferson City Police Department. Travis said he saw the video himself and couldn't make out if the shooter was black or white. 

One business owner said he's never felt unsafe on Michigan St. He noted they get a fair share of homeless people living nearby and strolling up and down the street because of the Salvation Army there.
