Columbia issues warrant in city's 1st 2013 slaying


COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Columbia police are looking for a 17-year-old wanted in the shooting of a man whose death is the first reported slaying in the city this year.

Acting Columbia Police Chief Ruben Santiago said Sunday that 17-year-old Clifton DeAaron Dreher of Columbia was wanted on warrants for murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime. He says Dreher should be considered armed and dangerous.

Police say the victim was standing on the front porch of his home when someone shot him just before 2 a.m. Sunday.

They say preliminary information indicates the man many have been involved in an argument with someone at the home before the shooting.

Police say they've recovered the vehicle used in the shooting.
