COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - Deputies are investigating after they say a woman was shot at a nail salon in Columbia on Friday afternoon.

It happened at Rose Nail on St. Andrews Road around 4:30 p.m. Friday, the Richland County Sheriff’s Department confirmed. That’s near the intersection of St. Andrews and Broad River roads in northwest Columbia.

First responders found the woman lying in the doorway of the business with a gunshot wound to her upper body.

The victim told deputies her child was in her car out front, and to call her mother for help, according to the incident report.
