COLUMBIA, SC - Columbia Police Chief Randy Scott hopes the public will view a composite sketch of an attempted murder suspect and call CPD with information on his identity.

The suspect is accused of shooting a 20-year-old male on Monday July 11, 2011 shortly before 10 PM. The victim was walking with three females on the 4800 block of Monticello Road in the Eau Claire community. The victims say a tan or brown, possibly a 4-door Nissan Maxima with two individuals inside stopped near them in the roadway.

The victims tell investigators that the unidentified passenger made vulgar remarks to the females and exchanged words with the male victim. After the victim asked the suspects to leave the scene, it is believed that the passenger fired shots at him. A bullet hit the victim in the upper leg. He was transported to a local hospital. The females were not physically harmed.

The suspects are described as black males in their mid 20s. The driver is described as having dark-skin and a medium build. The accused shooter is described as having light-skin with tattoos, a low-cut hair style and at least three lines cut in both eyebrows. A forensic artist at SLED assisted the CPD with drawing the composite sketch of the suspect.

Chief Scott encourages citizens with information about this crime to call, text or submit online, their anonymous tip to Crimestoppers.
