Boone County Sheriff’s deputies need your help in finding the suspect or suspects involved in Saturday evening’s double shooting on West Bellview, just outside the Columbia city limits.

One of the shooting victims is a five-year-old with non-life threatening injuries. No arrests have been made.

Boone County deputies say the shooting happened Saturday at about 6:35 pm on West Bellview, which is near Scott Boulevard and the MKT trail’s Jay Dix station. Deputies say that when they arrived, they found a 31-year-old man and the child outside the home with gunshot wounds. The Sheriff’s department says the man’s injuries are serious and life-threatening.

Deputies say initial evidence indicates that multiple suspects/shooters were involved.

The Boone County Sheriff’s investigation continues. Anyone with information is urged to call Columbia CrimeStoppers at (573) 875-TIPS. You can call that number anonymously. Columbia Police and the MUSTANG drug task force are assisting with the investigation.

ABC-17’s Abby Landwehr from our news partner KMIZ was on-scene throughout Saturday evening. Aby reports the entire house was surrounded by crime scene tape, and that most of the Boone County Sheriff’s deputies on-scene were in the back yard. It’s unclear if that’s where the shooting occurred.
