BEAUFORT, S.C. (WCSC) - Beaufort County deputies say people who reportedly fired shots at a vehicle and caused a three-vehicle crash have not been found.

Deputies and K-9 officers responded Tuesday afternoon to assist Port Royal Police. Investigators say people inside one vehicle fired shots at another vehicle near Broad River Bridge in Beaufort.
