Deputies investigating Hollywood drive-by shooting

HOLLYWOOD, SC (WCSC) - Charleston County Sheriff's Office is investigating reports of a drive-by shooting in Hollywood that sent one man to the hospital with multiple gunshot wounds.

According to an incident report, deputies met with the 25-year-old victim at a hospital early Wednesday morning. The victim was dropped off at the hospital by a relative after he was injured in a drive-by shooting.

The victim told deputies he was walking on Ethel Post Office Road towards Peters Field Road around 1:20 a.m. when a black Dodge Charger passed him. The vehicle was traveling the same way he was walking, but then turned around and drove back towards him.

When the Charger came up beside him, a passenger in the back seat yelled "aye" from the rolled down window, and then fired a single gunshot believed to be from a shotgun, the report states.

Deputies say the victim was hit in the right hand, left arm, chest, and abdomen by small game pellets.

The victim was not able to get a description of the suspect as it was dark out at the time of the shooting.

If you have any information on this incident, call Crime Stoppers at 843-554-1111.
