GEORGETOWN COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - Deputies are searching for a man in connection to a shooting and assault that left two people injured early Wednesday morning near Andrews.

The Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office says the incident took place just after 3 a.m. Wednesday at a home on Watford Place.

Witnesses told deputies they saw the man shoot a round at the home attempting to shoot the two victims.

The man then came inside the home and used a firearm to beat both the victims, deputies say. He then trapped the victims behind the front door continuing to attack them before fleeing the scene, according to the incident report.

The two people were taken to the hospital for treatment.

Deputies are searching for 28-year-old Hunter Nance in connection to the incident, sheriff’s office spokesman Jason Lesley said.

Nance is described as 6 feet tall and 220 pounds with red hair and a beard. He was last seen wearing a red shirt and grey pants.
