Police in Goose Creek are investigating a shooting that occurred inside the Persimmon Hill area of the city around 1:30 a.m. on Nov. 1.
Police said when investigators arrived on scene they saw the male victim through an open front door and noticed there was a lot of blood coming out of the victim’s legs.
Investigators said the 37-year-old victim and his wife had trouble telling them exactly what happened or if there were any suspects nearby.
The incident report said the man told police there were two black males and he was concerned about his vehicle keys and a bag left in the roadway.
The incident report states he kept saying, “around the corner” to police questions. Those on scene said the victim had an injury to his upper right thigh as well as an entry and possible exit wound on his left shin just below his knee.
Police said they observed a trail of blood in the roadway which lead up to the front door. Police asked for any information on what exactly occurred but little was provided. Police asked if there were any issues with anyone.
Police learned that recently a person was fired from the store the couple owned for stealing.
So far there have been no arrests, Police Major John Grianger said the investigation is still active.
