A man was hospitalized after a shooting Monday night, according to the Columbia Police Department.

Officers responded to a shots-heard call in the 400 block of Oak Street just before 11 p.m., according to Sgt. Neal Sedgwick.

When officers arrived, they found the 24-year-old shooting victim in a car at the intersection of Jewell Avenue and Sexton Road. The man had been shot in the torso.

First responders took him to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

KOMU 8 crews on the scene saw officers searching the vehicle for evidence.

Multiple units responded to the call, including crime scene investigators.

Police did not have a suspect in custody as of late Monday evening, but police thought it was an isolated incident and not a broader threat to the public.

The case fell under the jurisdiction of Columbia's Violent Crime Task Force established Monday, according to a news release from Columbia Police Department.
