The Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a fatal shooting that occurred outside of a nightclub early Sunday, officials say.

The incident occurred shortly after 2 a.m. at Club Ambition on Neeses Highway, Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said in a statement released Sunday.

Two men were sitting in the parking lot of the club when a third person drove up and shot one of the men three times, Ravenell said. The other man got up to run away but was fatally shot in the back by the suspect.

The sheriff’s office is continuing to investigate.

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call investigators at (803) 534-3550 or Crimestoppers at 888-CrimeSC.
