COLUMBIA – Police responded to several reports of gunfire shortly after 2 p.m. Tuesday in the 3600 block of West Sugar Tree Lane in east Columbia, according to a news release from the Columbia Police Department.

The release said that gunfire hit one residence multiple times. Police are still investigating and searching the area, but believe this was not a random incident.
