Police Seek Shooting Suspect


Low Country sheriff's deputies are asking for your help in finding a suspect in a shooting that left a man maimed.

The man's name is Torrence Young, and he was living in Burton. Beaufort County sheriff's deptuties say Young shot Roderick Bailey in the head last Monday--the bullet put the victim's eye out. Bailey flagged down a motorist who took him to Beaufort Memorial Hospital. He was then airlifted to Memorial Health.

Investigators say Young should be considered armed and dangerous. He's wanted on charges of aggravated assault with intent to kill. Deputies also say Young may have cut his hair.

If you recognize the picture or know where Young may be hiding, you are urged to call the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office at (843) 524-2777, or call your local authorities.
