COLUMBIA — Police are seeking two suspects in connection with an attempted armed robbery Sunday night.
According to a Columbia Police Department news release, two men — one armed with a handgun — forced a food delivery driver to knock on the front door of an apartment on Parker Street in north Columbia. A male resident opened the door, then, after noticing the gunman, shut and attempted to lock the door.
Four shots were then fired at the door. One bullet struck the resident in the right inner thigh and resulted in a minor injury. The man was not taken to the hospital, according to Public Information Officer Latisha Stroer.
After leaving the apartment, the gunman and his companion encountered two males in the parking lot, and the gunman fired two rounds at them. No one was injured. The two suspects left the scene on foot, according to the news release.
Police are asking anyone with information to contact the Columbia Police Department or CrimeStoppers at 875-TIPS (8477).
