The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office is asking the community to help identify a man who allegedly pulled out a gun between a pair of Hilton Head businesses, according to a Sheriff's Office news release.
A group of men were kicked out of Centerfolds Gentleman's Club shortly before 2 a.m. on May 9, according to the release. Once outside, they came across the suspect who had not been allowed into the club due to the dress code. The suspect got into an argument with the men who were asked to leave and reportedly pointed a handgun at one of the other men then fired it into the air between the club and South State Bank on Dunnagan’s Ally. After, he ran away.
The suspect is described as an approximately 5-foot-7 black male who is about 230 lbs., according to the release. He was wearing a large white T-shirt with a black shirt underneath and baggy pants.
