Columbia, SC (WLTX) - A woman who was shot last week succumbed to her injuries Saturday, and the suspect is still on the loose.
Columbia police say a home burglary at the Waverly Place Apartments on October 5 is what lead to a 32-year-old woman being shot.
The woman, identified as Cherrelle R. Evans was treated at a local hospital, but later died from a gunshot wound to the upper body early Saturday morning, according to the Richland County Coroner's Office.
A man was also shot during the incident, but he has been treated and released from the hospital.
The shooting is now being treated as a murder investigation, according to a tweet by the Columbia Police Department.
Last week, the department released a composite sketch of the suspect, who they considered armed and dangerous at the time. He is described as being a light-skinned black male, between 5 feet and 5 feet 3 inches tall with an average build and a mustache.
The suspect may be with another man in his mid-to-late 50s. This man is said to be black between 6 feet and 2-3 inches with an average build and scruffy facial hair.
