COLUMBIA — Columbia Police officers responded to reports of shots fired in two different locations Tuesday night. 

Residents near Hickman and Woodlawn avenues, near Hickman High School, first reported hearing shots fired at 9:38 p.m.  

A 24-year-old man told officers that shots were fired at him, though he had not been hit. He described the suspects as two males wearing dark clothing in a newer model, light-colored Nissan sedan, according to a news release. 

At 12:44 a.m., another shots fired call was placed near an apartment complex on Quail Drive in northeast Columbia. There is no description of any suspects or report of injury.

It is unknown at this time if the two incidents are related. Shell casings were found at both locations and both incidents are being investigated.

Anyone with information about these incidents, can call the Columbia Police Department's non-emergency number at 573-442-6131 or Crime Stoppers at 573-875-TIPS (8477) to remain anonymous.

Supervising editor is Stephanie Ebbs.
