COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Columbus police are investigating a fatal shooting that happened just before 9 p.m. Monday near the intersection of 6th Avenue and 32nd Street, near River Road and Veterans Parkway. 

Kristan Dozier, 20, was transported to the hospital with gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead shortly after arriving. 

A preliminary autopsy report shows that Dozier was shot in the arm and left shoulder. 

News Leader 9 spoke with a neighbor who says things like this are common in the area. "We grew up here and back then, we didn't have to worry about locking doors, or screen doors. You'd go to bed at night and leave your doors open and not have to worry about nobody coming in your house or anything. Now you have to bolt your windows and just about bolt your doors at night, " said John Chatwood, neighbor. 

Police are still investigating the case. So far, there has been no word on a possible suspect. 

This is the city's fourth murder of the year.

If you have any information on this case, please call 706-653-3400 or Crime Stoppers at 706-653-3188. You can also go to www.iSolveCrime.com and submit a tip for a reward.
