COLUMBIA — A suspect was arrested Tuesday in connection with a shooting at 2311 S. Providence Road on July 11, said Columbia Police Department spokeswoman Latisha Stroer.
The man who was injured by a gunshot July 11 is still in critical condition at a local hospital, Stroer said. As of 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, the injured man, 21, had not been identified.
The suspect, Cory A. Foster, was taken into custody at the corner of Fifth and Walnut streets at 3:39 p.m. Tuesday, according to a news release from the Columbia Police Department.
Foster, who denies involvement, is linked to the scene of the shooting by DNA evidence that was processed by the Columbia Police Department Forensic Evidence Team, according to the release.
Foster was arrested on suspicion of armed criminal action, burglary in the first degree and first-degree assault. Bonds were not set as of Tuesday morning. He was also arrested on suspicion of failure to appear in connection with two earlier misdemeanor charges, according to the news release.
Police are looking into the possibility that more people were involved in the shooting, Stroer said.
