COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Columbus Police are looking for two local men they say are responsible for a shooting on Veterans Parkway.

A 20-year-old man told police when he stopped at a traffic light at the intersection of Veterans Parkway and River Road Wednesday afternoon, a Ford Expedition pulled up beside him.

The two men inside the SUV were armed, one with a shotgun and the other with a revolver.  The victim told police when he turned onto Veterans Parkway, the Expedition followed him and the gunmen started firing at him.

He says he recognized the men and threw his seat back and his arm over his face when he heard the gunshots.

A pellet from the shotgun shell hit his forearm. He was treated and released from the Medical Center.

Now, police are looking for Aaron Williams, 20, and Tavarus Holsey, 20, both from Columbus.

They face charges of aggravated assault and criminal damage to property.

If you have any information on the whereabouts of these men, please call Columbus Police.
