Dorchester County Sheriff’s investigators are trying to sort out a situation that resulted in two people being shot Friday night.
According to a Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office report, the incident occurred November 30 at about 10:30 p.m. at a residence on Orangeburg Road. According to a report, an unknown black male driving a Honda near Greyback Road and Orangeburg Road flagged down an officer on patrol in the area to report that someone had been shot. The officer followed that person to a nearby residence where several people were yelling that someone had been shot. The officer spoke to several subjects, all of whom were described as intoxicated, who told the officer the victim was inside the house.
The officer found one man in the hallway; that person had been shot in the leg. That person said he did not know who shot him, that he was about to come inside the residence when someone shot him.
The victim was transported by EMS to Trident Medical Center.
Bystanders kept yelling that another shooting victim was outside. The officer found that individual lying outside in the brush; the victim had been shot several times in the back and buttocks. This victim, too, said he did not know who shot him. He was transported by EMS to the MUSC.
A witness reported seeing a small green car pull up to the residence and a tall black male got out of the vehicle. The witness reported then hearing gunshots.
Other witnesses reported hearing gunshots but said they did not see anything. One reported that he took off running when he heard the shots.
No one apparently saw the shooter, according to the report.
One individual apparently became combative toward a deputy, to the point where he apparently threatened the deputy with an ASP baton. The deputy had to taze that subject and transport him to the detention center.
