COLUMBIA, SC (WOLO)– The Columbia Police Department says that no charges will be filed in the Tuesday night shooting at Capri Apartments that left one dead. Police say their investigation led them to determine that the shooting fell under self-defense.
Authorities say the 23-year-old man who was killed was an armed aggressor. Shortly after 11 p.m. Tuesday, police say the man arrived at the apartments unannounced, armed and began to assault a male. Officials say the male’s brother pushed his brother off into safety and shot the 23-year-old.
