Columbia police shot an armed man April 26 at the Walmart on Bush River Road.
Police were responding to reports of the man acting erratically in the store. The man left the store and ran to a nearby gas station where he shot a customer at the gas pumps.
Shortly after he confronted two officers and was shot. The victim’s injuries were not life-threatening, but required surgery. The suspect was conscious when he was transported to a hospital.
SLED is investigating the officer-involved shooting, which is standard practice.
