A Columbia resident went to the hospital Saturday after an incident involving a gun earlier that morning.

Torrey Donte Williams of Columbia was treated for a bullet wound at University Hospital’s Emergency Room, a news release by the Boone County Sheriff’s Department said.

When deputies arrived at the emergency room at 1:05 a.m. Saturday, Williams gave them a false name and refused to identify his assailant, the release said. The department discovered the patient’s real name when he gave them his Social Security number.

A Sheriff’s Department investigation found the wound was a result of an incident in the Rock Bridge Estates Subdivision on Saturday morning.

The department believes the incident was related to a disturbance in the subdivision, in the 300 block of Chris Drive East, earlier that morning. Deputies had gone there to respond to the disturbance. Deputies learned that a gun had been involved and began investigating, said Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Lance Robbins. The victim later told deputies that he was in the area at the time of the disturbance.

Robbins said as of Saturday morning Williams was still at the hospital.

Anyone with information about the incident should call the Sheriff’s Department at 875-1111 or 875-TIPS.
