COLUMBIA — One of two suspects in a shots-fired and assault incident in late June outside Lakewood Apartments on Old 63 turned herself in to authorities Tuesday morning.

Tabisha Franklin, 32, has been charged with first-degree assault and armed criminal action on suspicion of assaulting a 40-year-old woman with a tire tool while the other suspect, Kimo Spivey, 23, fired five bullets at a 45-year-old man about 5 p.m. June 21, according to a release in June from the Columbia Police Department.

No one was injured by the gunfire in the June shooting, and the female victim was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, the release stated.

Franklin was taken into custody with a bond amount of $264,000.

As of Tuesday evening, police were still seeking Spivey, who has been charged with first-degree assault, armed criminal action and unlawful possession of a firearm in connection to the June 21 shooting. A cash-only bond of $520,000 has been set for Spivey.

Anyone with information about Spivey's whereabouts was asked to contact the Columbia Police Department or Crime Stoppers at 573-875-TIPS to remain anonymous.
