Tuesday, October 23, 2012

SUMTER, SC - A 27-year-old Sumter man was treated and released from the hospital after being shot in the hand Saturday afternoon, according to Capt. Allen Dailey of the Sumter County Sheriff's Office.

According to a report, deputies were contacted by Tuomey Regional Medical Center about a man in the emergency room with a gunshot wound to his left hand. Officers were told by the man that he chased two men, who he thought were breaking into his mobile home in the 1100 block of Cherryvale Drive. During the pursuit in the back yard, one of the men stopped and fought with the 27-year-old man. Deputies said the suspect took out a handgun and shot the resident before running off in an unknown direction. Dailey said the incident is under investigation.
