COLUMBIA — An investigation of shots fired Friday afternoon at Lakewood Apartments, 206 N. Old 63, revealed there was an ongoing dispute between the suspects and victims, a Columbia Police Department news release stated.

The department has identified the two suspects as Kimo Deandre Spivey, 23, and Tabisha N. Franklin, 32. 

Spivey shot at the victims, a 45-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman, but no one was injured by the gunfire, according to police. Franklin assaulted the female victim with a tire tool, according to the news release. The female victim was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries before officers arrived on the scene. Officers located five shell casings at the scene, the release stated.

Spivey should be considered armed and dangerous, and is wanted on charges of first-degree assault and armed criminal action, according to the release. Franklin is wanted on charges of second-degree assault.

This incident was not related to any other recent shootings and it was not gang-related, the release stated.

Anyone with information on Spivey or Franklin's whereabouts was asked to contact the Columbia Police Department at 442-6131 or Crime Stoppers at 875-TIPS to remain anonymous.
