Sheriff’s Office

A 22-year-old Orangeburg man doesn’t know who shot him or why they shot him on Tuesday afternoon, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.

Deputies spoke with the man at the Regional Medical Center.

The man said that he was a passenger in a blue Mercury Mariner when someone shot him in his left foot.

The driver of the vehicle told deputies that they went to the Shell gas station/Bojangles at 110 Chestnut Street to purchase some items.

The driver said that two acquaintances were parked in a black Jeep Renegade in front of her. A silver Nissan Altima pulled up on the other side of the Jeep.

She waited for the Nissan to pull out of the parking space so that she could move her vehicle. As the driver of the Nissan pulled away, he attempted to strike her vehicle, the woman said.

As she began to turn down Jamison Avenue, the Nissan’s driver began shooting at her vehicle, striking the right door near the bottom, the report said.
