Columbia police are investigating a homicide.
Officers found the body of a man inside an apartment building at the intersection of West Texas Avenue and Doris Drive.
Police said they have no motive and very few clues.
Officers responded to a shots fired call about 1:40 p.m.
After finding the body, officers took 2 people in for questioning that were inside the apartment.
They are also looking for 1 to 3 possible suspects in a green, Chevy Impala.
Police said more than one person was in the Impala when it left the crime scene.
Investigators said this was not a random shooting.
Neighbor Donald Schmitz said he wasnâ??t surprised that a homicide happened near his home.
Schmitz said, â??It happens in Columbia all of the time anymore. It seems to be. I still feel safe. I just think it was a random thing, I think.â??
Police have not released the name of the victim.
They do not know if anyone else was injured during the shooting.
Columbia Police Officer Latisha Stroer said, â??We were also given information through joint communications that shots were also fired outside of the residence between the vehicle and the residence. We are trying to gather information to see if that is true.â??
Police want anyone with information to call Columbia CrimeStoppers at 573-875-TIPS.
The investigation is ongoing.
