BEAUFORT COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office says a man armed with a gun got onto a couple's boat at a marina and pistol whipped one of the victims early Tuesday morning.

Deputies responded to the Shelter Cove Marina just before 1:30 a.m. in reference to a report of shots fired and a woman screaming for help. When deputies arrived, a 26-year-old woman said that her husband had been shot.

Deputies found the 26-year-old man, who had an injury to his head, but no gunshot wounds. Authorities say based on the evidence, the victim may have been pistol whipped, and the gun discharged during the assault.

The victim said he and his wife had been sitting on the boat and listening to music when a man armed with a gun surprised them by coming aboard.

After assaulting the man, investigators say the suspect fled towards the parking lot. The victim was transported to Hilton Head Medical Center and was released.

The suspect was described as a black male, between 21 and 25 years old, wearing a black shirt and a black hat.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC or text the word TIPSC with a message to CRIMES.
