Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office

One person went to the hospital with a gunshot wound after an attempted robbery at an Orangeburg business on Wednesday, according to Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell.

“This was apparently a robbery attempt on a Belleville Road business and this resulted in one of the subjects being taken to the hospital after being shot,” Ravenell said.

Orangeburg County Sheriff’s investigators were called to a barbershop located on the 1300 block of Belleville Road just before 2 p.m.

Investigators learned that two subjects entered the establishment with the intent to rob the employees inside. At least one of the subjects was allegedly armed.
