Witnesses tell officers with the Goose Creek Police Department the shooting happened near the gas pumps at the station. 

Several witnesses said they saw a man fire a shot and then speed off in a darkly colored Dodge Charger. He said the vehicle struck a curb and one of its tires blew out.  Witnesses also said they say a second vehicle pursue the suspect.

Officers say a 22-year-old man was found suffering from a gunshot wound to the buttocks a short distance away and taken to the hospital for treatment. It's believed he'll recover from his injuries.
