A 17-year-old is wanted in connection with a shooting Friday afternoon.

Kejuan Antonio Gilyard has outstanding arrest warrants for attempted murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, Columbia Police Department spokeswoman Jennifer Timmons said.

Police said Gilyard is accused of shooting a man near a mini mart in the 2300 block of Two Notch Road.

Preliminary information suggests that the two acquaintances confronted each other in the parking lot before shots were fired, Timmons said.

Timmons said the man is still in the hospital where he remains in intensive care, according to medical personnel. 

A motive has not been determined at this time.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
