Richland County sheriff’s deputies are looking for a suspect in an early morning shooting near the 7100 block of Parklane Road.

Around 3 a.m. Sunday, a vehicle pulled up to the victim and someone inside demanded the victim get into the vehicle, according to Richland County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Curtis Wilson. The victim, who was on foot, then fled, and the suspect fired multiple shots with a handgun, striking the victim in the lower body.

The victim was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries, Wilson said.

Anyone with information should call CrimeStoppers at (888) CRIME-SC.
