Man grazed by bullet outside St. Helena club

Shots fired outside a St. Helena Island night club early Saturday left one man injured and the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office looking for suspects.

Just before 4 a.m., deputies were called to Club 21 at 1538 Sea Island Parkway where they found evidence of multiple shots fired in or near the parking lot. They soon received a report of a gunshot victim at Beaufort Memorial Hospital.

A 28-year-old man, who apparently had been grazed on the arm, told deputies at the hospital he had been standing outside the club's entrance when he heard shots, then realized he'd been wounded. He said he did not see who fired the shots or where they came from.

Anyone with information should contact Investigator Sgt. J. Fraser at 843-255-3416 or the Beaufort County Dispatch Center at 843-524-2777.
