A St. Helena Island man was shot at Tuesday by a man in a car near a grocery store, according to a Beaufort County Sheriff's Office news release.

The 18-year-old man was walking with a friend near Folly Grocery at 489 Seaside Road when four men in a brown Toyota Corolla threatened to shoot them, the release said. The driver then fired at them several times.

The victims hid in the woods before going home and reporting the incident, the release said.

The driver was described as a short, heavy-set black male wearing a black and blue striped shirt.
