Report: Teen too drunk to notice being shot

ORANGEBURG COUNTY, SC (WIS) - A Norway teen who had been drinking wine for several hours was too drunk to notice being shot in the leg at a party on Friday, according to a sheriff's department incident report.

Deputies were called to Bamberg County Hospital around 8 p.m. Friday after a 19-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound was dropped off at the facility.

The victim told deputies that he had attended a party at a brick house on a dirt road off of Ninety-Six Road in Neeses earlier that afternoon. During the party, the teen said that he heard 17 gunshots, but did not see who was firing.

While watching the 30 to 40 people at the party run away, the victim said he fell to the ground, but only remembers his cousin picking him up and taking him to a vehicle. It was not until they were on their way to the emergency room in Bamberg that the victim noticed that he had been shot in the leg.

According to the report, the victim told deputies that he had been drinking wine since about 4 p.m. and that he was highly intoxicated.

Hospital staff said the man that dropped the victim off at the hospital "left hurriedly" after sitting in the waiting room for a short time.

Deputies are trying to find the teen's cousin.

The incident is still under investigation.
