COLUMBIA — Shots were fired around 11:45 p.m. Thursday at Campus Lodge Apartments in an apparently drug-related incident, according to a news release from the Columbia Police Department. One man was injured and treated at a local hospital before being released into police custody.

According to the news release, a police investigation into the incident found that two male Campus Lodge residents had arranged a drug deal with 20-year-old Antwine Jackson, the gunshot victim. The residents let Jackson into the apartment, after which he went into a back room to look at the marijuana, the release stated. Jackson then returned to the front door and let in two males wearing ski masks. The masked men pointed handguns at the residents while they collected the marijuana, said Latisha Stroer, public information officer for the Police Department.

There was a gunshot outside while the suspects were gathering the marijuana, Stroer said. The residents said they believe it was an accidental shot from the suspects. When the suspects left the apartment, a second shot was fired.

During the investigation, officers discovered Jackson at a local hospital. Jackson, who had been shot in the side of his body, was treated for minor injuries. He was arrested on charges of first-degree robbery and armed criminal action.

This was the first of two shooting incidents in Columbia in two days.

Campus Lodge Apartments are located at 2900 S. Old 63.
