COLUMBIA — The Callaway County Sheriff's Office is investigating a shooting that occurred Sunday around 3:20 a.m. at The Stage, an after-hours club located off State Road J and Interstate 70 at the Millersburg exit.

Two victims, both of Columbia, were shot and taken to University Hospital. As of 5:30 p.m. Monday, Jimmy Springer, 30, was listed in fair condition and William Joplin, 30, was listed in good condition. Both are expected to recover from their injuries.
