BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) – The Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office says its deputies have been involved in a shooting incident on the Wando Bridge.
Deputies attempted to stop a vehicle before 11:30 a.m. that was involved in multiple hit-and-runs, Dep. Carli Drayton said.
“The vehicle did not stop and Berkeley County deputies then pursued the vehicle,” she said.
The vehicle came to a stop on I-526 over the Wando River and shots were fired, she said.
Deputies did not say whether anyone was struck by gunfire or whether anyone was injured, although witnesses reported seeing a man lying on the roadway.
