Shooting reported at Columbia restaurant

According to a report by the Adair County Community Voice, one employee at Anderson’s Pizzeria in Columbia was shot Tuesday night after trying to help break up an altercation. He was taken to the hospital by personal vehicle and was in stable condition. At least one other male was also shot.

Police were on scene shortly after 9 p.m. last night after reports of the incident came in.

One Hispanic male was taken by EMS to T.J. Columbia then flown by emergency helicopter after reportedly being shot three times, once in the abdomen. It was reported at the scene that the altercation began inside the restaurant and it was a personal incident, not a random shooting.

Adair County Sheriff Josh Brockman, several deputies, the Columbia Police Department and Kentucky State Police responded to the scene. More information will be provided as it becomes available from authorities.
