DORCHESTER COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - Deputies say a shooting Saturday sent two people to the hospital.

Deputies say dispatch got a call about shots fired in the area just before noon.

“The first couple officers arriving on scene located one person who had a gunshot wound, and a very short time later a second person was located. Both of those folks have been transported to hospitals for treatment,” Lt. Rick Carson said.

There was no immediate word on the condition of the victims or whether deputies have anyone in custody.

The incident was reported in the 100 block of Orangeburg Road, Carson said.

A portion of Orangeburg Road was blocked off while deputies and detectives investigated the scene, but reopened around 6:20 p.m. on Saturday, Carson said.

Deputies were keeping bystanders a distance away from the shooting scene and caution tape blocked the roadway.
