ORANGEBURG, SC (WMBF) – The Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office is searching for an armed man who witnesses said fired shots into a club crowd early Saturday that killed one man and injured several others.

Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said the shooting happened after a fight at the Bamberg Highway nightclub shortly after 4 a.m. 

OCSO deputies were notified around 4:15 a.m. by hospital staff that several individuals entered the medical facility to be treated for gunshot wounds. The investigation led to the Pit Stop Pub located about two miles south of Orangeburg where they found a 36-year-old Orangeburg man on the ground in the parking lot. The man was declared dead at the scene.

Witnesses said a man who was in a fight earlier, drove off and fired random shots into a crowd outside of the club. Three others were also injured. Their injuries are not believed to be life threatening, according to OCSO.

Ravenell said, “We have a person of interest who we are looking for at this time.”

If anyone has information on the shooting, they are asked to call the OCSO at 803-534-3550 or Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
