Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Columbia police have located the silver Dodge Charger that was involved in the Colony apartments shooting in Charlotte.  

The car is being processed for forensic evidence according to police.  

Officers still want to locate and speak to 20-year-old Laquan Lamont Natt. They think he may have information in the shooting that took place last Monday night at the Colony Apartments.

That shooting injured Zahara Walker, who was hit by a stray bullet as she was watching t.v. in her apartment. Update: Child Shot at Apartments Out of I.C.U.

Investigators say a group of men got into a gunfight outside the apartments, and during the exchange of bullets, one of the shots entered the home and struck the girl.

One suspect, 21-year-old Marcus Gantt, has already been arrested and is facing a charge of attempted murder. Police have not yet said if Gantt fired the shot that injured the girl. Previous Coverage: Suspect in Shooting That Injured 4-Year-Old Denied Bond

Police believe the crime is gang-related.

In addition to being a person of interest in this case, officers say Natt is a suspect in an armed robbery case from last month. Officers say back on June 18th, he and a group of unknown persons robbed and assaulted four victims on Bailey Street near the Colony Apartments. The group is accused of taking clothes, money, phones, and car keys, and a car from the victims.

The vehicle was later recovered.

Anyone with information on where Natt may be, or who has any information on the Colony Apartments shooting, should call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC, or e-mail a tip in to Crimestoppers of the Midlands. You can also text information in by texting "TIPSC" plus your message to CRIMES (274637). Either way you choose, your identity will remain anonymous, and you could be eligible for a cash reward.
