In less than a week, seven people were shot in two different Columbia neighborhoods, leaving one person dead and a community very whary.

It’s very troubling for the community because, three suspects and six of the seven victims in these shootings were teenagers.

Shots were fired on Beech Street around 6pm Monday, a few miles away, on Westview Street, another shooting took place around 2:30pm Sunday May 28th.

Officials said there is no apparent connection between the two shooting incidents, which took place six days apart on opposite sides Columbia.
