COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Columbia Police Department investigators have released surveillance images of a person of interest and a vehicle that might be connected with the shooting death of a Columbia man a week ago. 

A man was found dead on the porch of a home in the 1100 block of Queen Street around 1:30 a.m. on November 16.

Richland County Coroner Gary Watts identified the victim as 40-year-old Richard Gilmore of Columbia. The coroner said Gilmore died from complications of a gunshot wound to the upper body.

Officers and investigators canvassed the area and talked with several people about the incident, a spokeswoman said.

Investigators are working to identify and locate a person of interest who is depicted in surveillance pictures walking at the intersection of King and Bratton Streets, which is near Queen Street, shortly after the shooting occurred. Officers want to talk with him about his knowledge of the crime.
