COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Columbus police are investigating a Sunday morning shooting in Midtown Columbus and the search in on for the suspect.

The shooting happened around 11 a.m. ET at the Village Square Apartments at 1441 Boxwood Boulevard, but the details are limited as to what may have caused the shooting.

A woman was shot in the leg and she has been transported to Midtown Medical Center where she is listed in stable condition and is being treated for her non-life threatening injuries.

At a second scene, police are searching for a male suspect involved in this case at the Bella Cove Apartments at 613 Farr Road in South Columbus.

One neighbor at Village Square Apartments says he sprang into action following the commotion outdoors.

"I didn't know what- whether the gunman was still here, or who was there. I'm just terrified, especially at night. During the day, I'm walking, looking around. That's what I did at war, I should not have to do it in the USA and especially in Columbus, Georgia," said the neighbor.

The neighbor also tells us he has requested extra security to patrol the area, especially after 5 p.m. when management is gone.

If you have any information on this case, you are asked to call Columbus police at 706-653-3400.
