COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

The Columbia Police Department is hoping the public can help investigators track down the person or persons responsible for a shooting Monday night in the Rosewood area of the city.

Officers responded to the 4000 block of Plowden Road shortly before 11:00 p.m. following several 9-1-1 calls reporting shots being fired in the area.

When officers arrived, they found a man suffering from a gunshot wound inside an apartment. Police said another person was applying pressure to the wound in order to assist the man.

The victim was transported to a local hospital where he continues to receive treatment.

Witnesses say there were several people involved in the shooting, describing the assailants as four black men wearing all black. Some were seen wearing bandanas to disguise their faces, police said.

Investigators continue to look into what led to the shooting. 

If you have information about the shooting, you are urged to call, text or submit online, your anonymous tip to Crimestoppers in any of the following ways: Call 1-888-CRIME-SC, Test to CRIMES (274637), and mark the beginning of the message with "TIPSC," followed by the tip information, or go to: www.midlandscrimestoppers.com, and click on the red "Submit a tip" tab.

Tipsters could earn a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest.
