Police investigation on 200 block of Locust this morning

At least half a dozen police departments responded to an incident on the 200 block of Locust Street at about 3 a.m. today. Officers scrutinized the exterior of surrounding buildings and sidewalks and set up yellow numbered incident markers in the street in front of the Columbia Water Company building. What appeared to be a baseball cap was observed lying in the street near the markers.

A resident of Third and Locust Streets told the Spy that he heard five to six "pops" this morning sometime between two and three o'clock. He also reported hearing a group of women shouting around that time. An officer informed the Spy that a shooting occurred.

Fire police detoured traffic away from the entire block, which was lined with police tape. Police also established an inner perimeter near the center of the block. 

More information will follow as it becomes available.

  5. I have a three year old. Coming from Lancaster I liked living here, it was quiet. But these past few months have been getting crazy. I am glad to be moving away from this area. People and the senseless violence is getting old.

  8. Have to say this is one of the stupidest things.Everyone is burn8ng Columbia for all the problems and saying you cant wait to move.Notice 99% of the shit goes down here are from people from Lancaster, York, Harrisburg.. Stay in them towns and create problems there. It is not the clubs problem that adults can n9t get together and act mature. Dont know what the problem or who started it but no reason to pull a gun no matter where your from. If you come from another town. Leave that attitude and trash there and start fresh. Why bring all your baggage from one town to the next? Not saying bad abput any town but when you move from philly to lanc to columbia and bring the friends and problems, you bring philly n lanc to columbia.
