Authorities continuing investigation after teens injured in Walterboro shooting

COLLETON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Officials with the Walterboro Public Safety Department say they are continuing an investigation into a weekend shooting that injured two teenagers.

On Sunday morning, officers responded to the area of Padgett Loop in reference to shots fired.  As officers were responding, deputies with the Colleton County Sheriff's Office reported that they had located the victims' vehicle at the intersection of Greenpond Highway and Glover Street.

Colleton County Fire and Rescue officials reported that a deputy had been flagged down to the victims' location. Emergency officials with CCFR reported that the vehicle had two shattered windows, and several bullet holes in the driver's side.

The driver of the vehicle, a 17-year-old male, had a gunshot wound to his shoulder, and a passenger, another 17-year-old male, had injuries to his eyes from glass shattering. Both of the victims were transported to Colleton Medical Center.

According to a report, both of the victims were unable to identify the shooters and declined to provide a voluntary statement.

Two other juveniles, a 17-year-old and a 16-year-old, in the back seat of the vehicle were not injured and were released to their parents. One of the juveniles reported that the shooting happened in the area of 117 Patterson Street.

Both of the victims have since been released from the hospital.

Authorities are continuing the investigation.
