Victim shot back at suspects during shooting at W. Columbia apt. complex, police say
WEST COLUMBIA, SC (WACH) – West Columbia Police Department detectives are still trying to figure out what prompted a shooting that left two dead and one injured at the New Brookland Apartments last week.
The department said they believe it could have started because of a disagreement, however.
Detectives said that one of the victims shot at the two suspects as they fled the scene. One of those suspects has been identified as 25-year-old Damien Ritter.
Ritter could be driving in a reddish 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe with the South Carolina tag #8839LW.
The department said that more than one weapon was also found at the home of one of the victims.
If you’ve seen Ritter or know where he is, you’re asked to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
