Lexington County investigating shooting on Old Dunbar Road
Cayce, SC (Paul Kirby) – The Lexington County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a shooting that happened Saturday afternoon on Old Dunbar Road near Charleston Highway close to Cayce. The shooting occurred across the street from the old Southern Plastic’s Plant and the Palmetto State Armory building within a block of the BB&T, just outside Cayce in the county.
According to Major J.J. Jones of the sheriff’s office, a victim was transported from the scene with what appeared to be a non-life threatening injury that was caused as a result of a gunshot. Jones said that a small black car had been impounded from the scene and was being treated as evidence in the case.
K-9 officers were seen on location from the City of Columbia’s Police Department. Those dogs had tracked east along the fence line at Palmetto State’s building away from the scene. Jones said that they were still looking for a suspect who had fled the incident, apparently on foot, but had not been apprehended.
