FLORENCE COUNTY, S.C. (WMBF) - One person was hurt and a man is now wanted after a shooting early Thursday in the Pee Dee.

The Florence County Sheriff’s Office said 38-year-old Jason Bryce Floyd is wanted for attempted murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime in connection to an incident on Karl J. Floyd Road, located just outside Olanta.

The department said responding deputies found the victim outside a home with a laceration and a gunshot wound. Witnesses said the suspect, later identified as Floyd, was believed to still be inside the home.

A SWAT team made entry into the home after deputies created a perimeter, but no one was found. A brief manhunt then ensued but was later suspended.

The victim was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Floyd remains at large as of 4 p.m. Thursday. He’s described as being around 5′7″ and 165 pounds with short red hair and visible neck tattoos.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Florence County Sheriff’s Office at 843-665-2121.
