Jefferson City police are asking for the public's help as they investigate a shooting that occurred Wednesday night.
According to police reports, officers responded to the 200 block of Center Street at approximately 9 p.m. for calls of shots fired. Witnesses said a passenger car left the area westbound on East High Street at a high speed. Moments later police received a call of a gunshot victim at the Capital Region Medical Center Emergency Room.
