BCSO investigates overnight shooting at Beaufort social club

Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC) -

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office is investigating a shooting that left one man injured outside a Beaufort social club overnight.

At approximately 12:30 a.m. Friday, Sheriff's deputies responded to the Night Hawk Motorcycle Club on Broad River Blvd in reference to a reported gunshot victim. Upon arrival, deputies discovered a 52-year-old male lying on a picnic table outside with a gunshot wound to the shoulder.

According to BCSO, neither the victim nor any of the club patrons could advise how the shooting had occurred, nor could anyone provide any information about a possible suspect.

Officials say that based on evidence collected at the scene, it is believed that two or more suspects may have exchanged gunfire in the parking lot, with the victim being unintentionally caught in the crossfire.

The victim was transported to Beaufort Memorial Hospital with non life-threatening injuries. At this time, the motive for the shooting remains undetermined and no suspects have been identified.

BCSO is asking anyone with information about the shooting to contact either Investigator SSgt. J. Fraser at 843.255.3416 or Crimestoppers.
