COLUMBIA ­– Police responded to a home invasion robbery involving a gun around 10:30 p.m. Saturday in south Columbia.

According to a news release from the Columbia Police Department, a person heard a knock on the door, opened the door and a man pushed his way in, followed by two to three more men. 

One of the men forced the person to sit on the couch while two or three more men ransacked the house. One of the suspects had a gun, the news report said. 

They stole some electronics, but the person was not injured.

In north Columbia later that night, police responded to shots fired in the Waffle House parking lot at 904 Range Line St., where three vehicles were present when the shots were fired. 

Police later received a phone call from a female who said her car was struck with bullets.

Multiple shots were fired from two separate weapons. Vehicles were seen leaving westbound on Vandiver Drive. Police found shell casings in the parking lot of the Waffle House and the neighboring Travel Lodge Motel lot.

There are no reports of any injuries in the incident.
