He is one of three people who were detained by law enforcement as a person of interest following the shooting.

“We do not believe this was random,” Columbia Police Chief WH “Skip” Holbrook said at a news conference. “We believe they knew each other and something led to the gunfire.”

The 14 victims range in age from 15 to 73. At least nine of them suffered gunshot wounds.
