One man was shot at a Seabrook home Monday evening and taken to the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston for treatment, according to Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Bob Bromage and a report made available Tuesday.
The adult male victim was at a Delaney Circle address when he was shot around 7:45 p.m. by someone he initially told deputies he did not know, according to the report. When deputies arrived, he was sitting on the ground with one gunshot wound. The location of the wound was redacted from the report.
The victim’s reason for being there was also redacted from the incident report, along with a statement that the victim claimed the suspect allegedly said at the scene. There were about 20 people standing around the victim, but none of them initially wished to speak with deputies.
Before the man was transported to Charleston, an investigator went to Beaufort Memorial Hospital to continue speaking with the victim because he was not able to provide a full description of what happened while still at the scene, according to the report.
No suspect description was released in a Sheriff’s Office news release that was sent around 8:45 p.m. Monday. As of Tuesday afternoon, no arrests had been made, and no update was available on the victim’s condition, according to Bromage.
