Attempted murder
Dorchester County Sheriff’s deputies were contacted by Colleton County Medical Center in reference to a shooting September 7 that occurred on Alonzo Road.
The victim told police he was the location around 3:30 a.m. drinking with a friend. He said an argument ensued over a female and escalated to a physical altercation when he struck his friend with his fist. His friend reached in his pocket and pulled out a small semi-automatic pistol.
The victim said he tried to take it away and it went off. After the weapon went off, the victim said they both left, in separate directions.
The victim went to another friend’s residence where he realized he had been shot in the foot. He got back in his car and went to the hospital.
The victim refused to tell police the name of his friend or where the friend lives.
