A vehicle at the location was also shot several times. A surgeon was brought to the ED to assist in the care of one patient. Weather conditions improved after sunrise and the critical patient was then flown by the C.A.R.E. Flight medical helicopter to the Trauma Center at Trident Medical Center in North Charleston. The Colleton County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the crime.
