Police seek suspect in Eau Claire shooting

Jul 14, 2011 5:53:00 PM - thestate.com
A 20-year-old man was shot in the leg Wednesday night as he walked with two women along Monticello Road in the Eau Claire community, Columbia Police reported.

A tan or brown Nissan Maxima with two men inside pulled up to the group, and the car’s passenger made vulgar remarks to the women, the police said. The men in the car exchanged words with the man who was walking, and the pedestrian told the other men to leave. One of those men fired shots as the car pulled away and a bullet struck the 20-year-old pedestrian in the leg, police said. He was taken to the hospital for treatment of his injuries. The women were not hurt.

The victims told police one of the men was light-skinned with tattoos and three lines cut into each eyebrow.
