COLLETON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - The Colleton County Sheriff's Office says deputies are investigating a shooting that sent one person to the hospital Thursday afternoon.

Authorities received a call around 4:14 p.m. of a shooting that happened on Oswald Court near Walterboro.

The victim said he had been shot twice in the stomach and once in the leg by an unknown subject that came to his front door. The victim was transported to the hospital.

According to the victim, the suspect left in an older model burgundy Lincoln.

The sheriff's office had announced earlier in the day that a suspect was in custody, but authorities later sent out a retraction that stated that a person of interest had been detained and no arrests have been made.

Authorities are continuing the investigation.
