COLUMBIA - One woman is dead after she was shot Tuesday night in Columbia. 

Shamya Brimmage, 25, died at a hospital after she and another woman were brought in with gunshout wounds, according to the Columbia Police Department. The condition of the other victim is still not known.

Bryana Larimer, a public information officer with CPD, said officers responded to the 1000 block of Madison Street two separate times on Tuesday. 

Officers first responded to the area around 5:45 p.m. after Boone County Joint Communications received multiple reports of shots heard. When they arrived on the scene, officers found shell casings on Madison Street. Police also discovered a home struck by gunfire in the 500 block of Jackson Street.

According to Larimer, later Tuesday at 10:10 p.m., more 911 calls came in reporting shots heard in the same block of Madison Street they responded to earlier. Officers found two women in their early 20s with gunshot wounds inside a home in the area.

Officers administered first aid to the victims, and then an ambulance brought them to a local hospital.

CPD said one or more suspects shot at the home, sending bullets through the walls and injuring the women.

Officers closed a half-block of West Forest Avenue and about a block of Madison Street. The Columbia Forensic Unit also came to the scene. The Criminal Investigations Division took over the investigation.

Larimer said all initial information suggested the two incidents at the home were related.
