COLUMBIA — A 23-year-old man died early Friday morning after being shot Thursday night in what police are investigating as a homicide.
The victim, identified as Dontay Tolston of Columbia, was found at his home, police said.
Columbia police officers were dispatched to the 2000 block of Newton Drive, northwest of Interstate 70 and Providence Road, at 11:33 p.m. Thursday after a shots-fired call and found a man lying on the floor with a gunshot wound, according to a police statement. A woman had found Tolston when she arrived at the residence.
Tolston was transported to a local hospital with serious injuries and was pronounced dead at 4 a.m.
