A 35-year-old Orangeburg man is dead, apparently after being shot in the head early Saturday morning. 

Someone called 911 at 4:20 a.m. to report a shooting incident at Da Yellow Sto, a nightclub located at 2257 Carver School Road in Cope, according to an Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office incident report.

As deputies arrived, three men flagged them down to show them the location of the victim.

The victim was on his back on the ground, the report said. Deputies weren’t able to locate a pulse and determined that the man had a gunshot wound to his head.

Nine individuals remained at the scene and told deputies they didn’t know what happened, but they each heard multiple shots fired and then saw the man on the ground.

Investigators reviewed surveillance video and found shell casings in the roadway.

The incident remains under investigation.

The Orangeburg County Coroner’s Office has not yet released the name of the shooting victim.

If anyone has information about the incident, they are asked to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
