COLUMBIA, SC - Columbia Police Chief Randy Scott announces that last night’s shooting at a local restaurant has now turned into a murder investigation as a male victim has died from his injuries.

Preliminary information suggests that shortly after 9:00 p.m., at least two groups were arguing in the parking lot of the McDonald’s restaurant at 2911 Two Notch Road when shots were fired.

A total of three people were hit by bullets. The male victim was transported to a local hospital and was later pronounced dead by medical staff.

The Richland County Coroner’s Office is assisting CPD with the investigation and will determine the exact cause of death and identification of the victim.
