COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - The Columbia Police Department continues to search for the other man wanted in connection with the shooting of a 17-year-old CA Johnson student who was killed in a downtown park last weekend.

Eric Washington was gunned down at TS Martin Park on Germany Street around 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

Since then, police have arrested at least one person in connection with Washington's death. Jahmir Taylor, 19, has been charged with Washington's murder.

However, a second man, Jerimiah Pough, 19, continues to elude investigators. Police say Pough may be receiving help from family and friends in the area and charges could be filed against anyone who is aiding him.

Once captured, Pough is expected to be charged with murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

If you have any information that could lead police to Jerimiah Pough, please call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
