Report: Man shot in buttocks after leaving Club Pluto

BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - The Berkeley County Sheriff's Office has released details from Tuesday's early-morning shooting on NAD Road.

According to an incident report, the shooting on NAD Road happened shortly after the victim left Club Pluto, located on Red Bank Road.

One person, who told authorities he was a contracted photographer at the club, was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound to his left buttocks.

The photographer told deputies he had left the club and turned onto Snake Road before turning left onto NAD Road, at which time another vehicle sped by on his left side and a person inside opened fire.

The victim said he was reaching for his gun in the glove compartment when he felt a bullet strike his buttock.

The man said the driver in the vehicle then turned around and made another pass at him, firing shots at the front of his vehicle.

The victim described the suspect's vehicle as a dark-colored, small four-door "Toyota type."

Deputies noted in their report observing five bullet holes on the photographer's car, two on the hood, one in the driver's-side door, one through the driver's-side window, and one in the fuel tank door.

When deputies asked the victim if they could search his vehicle, he complied and told them "to do whatever [they] needed to do to find who did this to him."

Captain Rick Ollic said no arrests have been made.

While sheriff's office spokesman Dan Moon said early Tuesday the shooting stemmed from a fight at Club Pluto, none of that information was included in the incident report.

NAD Road, from Rivers Avenue to Snake River Road, was shut down for about an hour and a half this morning while deputies set up crime tape and searched the scene for evidence.

The road reopened a little after 6 a.m.
