Man injured in New Year's Day shooting on I-26

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Police say an altercation at a nightclub in North Charleston spilled onto the lanes of I-26 during a shooting which injured one man early Sunday morning.

North Charleston Police Department spokesman Spencer Pryor says officers responded to a parking lot of a hotel on Tanger Outlet Drive just after 3 a.m. on New Year's Day.

The victims told police they were driving in the eastbound lanes of I-26 after leaving Club Crucial on Ashley Phosphate Road following some type of altercation.

Club owners confirmed to police that there had been a fight at the club and that many guests were told to leave.

The victims said they weren't involved in the altercation but nonetheless were told to leave by club security.  The victims said that shortly after they pulled onto I-26, a vehicle pulled up alongside them and someone fired shots.

The driver of the car was struck by one of the shots and was taken to MUSC to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.  The other three occupants in the vehicle were not injured, police say.
