Gunman Sought in Battery Creek High Shooting

Police search the scene. Police search the scene.

A young man is in the hospital after a shooting in the Low Country. It happened around 6:30pm last night outside of Battery Creek High School's gym in Beaufort County.

About 50 students were watching Beaufort and Jasper County scrimmage when someone fired shots outside hitting 19-year-old Darren Morgan at least once. Morgan was not a student at the school, but stumbled inside the gym for help.

He was rushed to a hospital in Beaufort County while police set up a perimeter around the school to search cars and buses as they left.

There's no word yet on Morgan's condition and Beaufort County police are still searching for the gunman.
