COLLETON COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - The State Law Enforcement Division and Colleton County deputies are investigating a shooting that injured five people at what dispatchers described as a “chaotic scene.”

The victims range in age from 17 to 33 years old, according to Colleton County Fire-Rescue.

SLED spokesman Ryan Alphin confirmed Sunday morning that the Colleton County Sheriff’s Office requested assitance from SLED, but said the sheriff’s office was leading the investigation, referring any requests for comments about the case to deputies.

The shooting followed an altercation in the 1900 block of Logan Farm Road Friday at approximately 11:36 p.m., firefighters say.

Crews responded to an initial report of a single gunshot victim but while they were on the way to the scene, they learned a second person had been injured.

The victims range in age from 17 to 33 years old, Colleton County Fire-Rescue crews said.
