Friends rushing shooting victim to hospital miss exit
Thursday, December 1, 2011

LEXINGTON, SC (WIS) - The Richland County Sheriff's Department says they're investigating who shot a 19-year-old at the Park Apartments on Longcreek Dr.

Officials say they received a call just before 7:00 p.m. about the shooting, but they were unable to locate a victim at the scene.

Several minutes later, deputies from the Lexington County Sheriff's Department called Richland County deputies informing them that they have a victim who was shot at the Park Apartments and they were transporting him to the hospital.

Authorities say the victim's friends were trying to take him to the hospital, but missed their exit and pulled off to the Pitt Stop gas station to call for help. They waited with the man until help arrived and he was transported to Palmetto Health Richland.

Deputies are conducting interviews to determine what happened.
