RICHLAND COUNTY, SC — Sheriff Leon Lott said the victim was taking out the trash Thursday in back of the BP Gas Station, 8000 Garners Ferry Road, when he was confronted by at least four black males. One of the suspects pulled out a gun and shot the victim in the upper body as he tried to return to the store, Lott said, adding he was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Video surveillance captured at least one of the suspects and a vehicle, possibly a burgundy Honda Accord, Lott said. Occupants in another vehicle in the area, possibly a gold Toyota Corolla, could have information about the shooting, the sheriff added.
Anyone with information should call CrimeStoppers, (888) CRIMESC.
