The Columbia Police Department said on its Twitter page that the shootings occurred Saturday in the city's Vista entertainment district. Police said that the victims' conditions ranged from stable to critical.

Police released surveillance photos showing a black or dark gray Ford Mustang and a BMW. Police believe the people in those vehicles may have information related to the shooting.
