WALTERBORO, SC (WCSC) -

Authorities say a man was shot following an argument during a card game in Walterboro Wednesday night. 

Walterboro police responded to Lincoln Apartments on 404 Whitsell St. at 9:08 p.m. for a man who had just been shot. 

Officers found the victim with a single gunshot wound to the abdomen. 

Emergency officials say the 26-year-old victim was found near the 800 building. 

Colleton County Fire and Rescue crews responded to the scene and transported him to Colleton County Medical Center. 

CCFR officials say the victim was then transported by air to MUSC and was last listed in critical condition.

Walterboro PD investigators say they believe the incident was an isolated argument between individuals who were playing a card game. 

According to police, the argument became heated and one of the individuals shot the victim. 

A press release by police states that due to a lack of cooperation from witnesses at the scene, investigators are still unaware who shot the victim.  

Anyone who has information about the incident is asked to call police or Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
