A man was hurt Monday when he and his girlfriend were shot at while in the back of a car at a hotel in Columbia, according to the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department.

The 29-year-old Columbia resident was shot several times while in the parking lot of the Country Inn & Suites at 414 Piney Grove Road, according to an incident report provided by the sheriff’s department. That’s near Bower Parkway, about a quarter mile from Exit 104 on Interstate 26, and close to the Richland County line.

The man’s medical team notified deputies that his injuries are not considered life threatening, department spokesman Capt. Adam Myrick told The State Tuesday. Further information on his condition was not available.

His girlfriend, a 28-year-old Columbia resident who told deputies she has been staying at the hotel near the Harbison area, was not injured, according to the incident report.

No other injuries were reported.

At about 7:30 p.m., deputies responded to reports of a shooting at the hotel, the incident report said.

While EMS tended to the man’s injuries, a deputy interviewed his girlfriend. She said the man had come to visit her at the hotel and the shooting happened while they were “being intimate in the back of his vehicle,” according to the incident report.

While in the back of the car, the woman told the deputy she saw an unknown car and an unknown SUV pull behind her boyfriend’s car, and then two men approached their vehicle checking to see if anyone was inside, the incident report said.

When the two men realized the woman and her boyfriend were in the car, they began ordering the man to exit the vehicle, saying “Get out the car,” according to the incident report.

Data from a recent leak suggests that Activision plans to release Call of Duty on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as late as 2024.

The next two installments of Call of Duty may be released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This is what documents from the December data leak experienced by Activision and accessed by duty-2024-past-generation-consoles/”Insider Gaming.

According to journalist Tom Henderson, information so far indicated that this year’s installment of the series, Project Cerberus (originally due for release only in 2024), would be the last to hit 8th-gen consoles. However, leaked data that has hit the web indicates that also the next CoD may be released on PS4 and XOne.

Henderson points out that while the authenticity of the documents is not in much doubt, the information they contain may be outdated. After all, as we mentioned, the hacking of Activision’s servers was supposed to take place in December, and the company has already managed to change its plans on other issues.

Nevertheless, it is worth noting that Microsoft has only just signed contract with Nintendo, in which it pledged to release the next installments of Call of Duty on the Japanese manufacturer’s platforms (provided its acquisition of Activision Blizzard is successful).

So while the company has no imminent plans to launch a new console, the next CoD games would be coming out for Nintendo Switch – a much less powerful device than the PS4 and XOne. In that case, there would be no reason for Activision
