A 36-year-old Columbia man was shot in the right foot Tuesday night following an argument in the parking lot of a College Avenue gas station.

Columbia police were dispatched to Phillips 66, 500 N. College Ave., at 9:35 p.m. Tuesday after a shooting was reported.

The victim told police that one of his friends began to argue with several suspects near the station’s gas pumps, Columbia police Sgt. Eric Stevenson said in a news release. The victim said when he tried to approach the suspects, the men got in their vehicle and shot at him and his friend three times while driving northbound on College Avenue.

The victim is listed in stable condition at a local hospital, police said.

The victim described the vehicle the suspects were driving as a red, late ’90s or 2000 Chevrolet Tahoe or Suburban with chrome rims, known as “spinners.”

Anyone with information regarding the shooting is asked to contact CrimeStoppers at 875-8477.
