One man was killed and another was hurt Monday in a late night shooting, the Columbia Police Department said.

Officers responded to a ShotSpotter alert in the 2300 block of Two Notch Road at about 9 p.m., police said. ShotSpotter is a technology that uses acoustic monitors to detect a sound like gunfire. The system sends the gunfire's location to Columbia police within 45 seconds.

When officers arrived at the scene, about a half mile from CA Johnson High School, one injured man was found and taken to an area hospital, police said.

A second injured man showed up at the hospital by other means, according to police. Officers were told by medical staff that they were treating him for injuries.
