COLUMBIA — Police confirmed they were looking for three suspects in connection with the shooting of Walmart employee that occurred around 3 a.m. Monday morning. An earlier story in the Missourian said a possible third suspect was nearby.

Columbia Police Department spokeswoman Jessie Haden said that two suspects, one of whom shot the victim twice in the back and once in the hand, approached the victim on foot. The third drove the suspects away from the scene.

The victim, a 54-year-old man, was still in stable condition in the Intensive Care Unit in University Hospital.
