The 21-year-old man sustained a gunshot wound to his abdomen while working outdoors. He was taken to Beaufort Memorial Hospital by Beaufort County EMS and later transferred to the Medical University of South Carolina where he remains in stable condition.
Witnesses in the area reported hearing gunfire and then observed a man walking away from the scene. Due to the rural area where this incident occurred, it is not believed to be a random act of violence.
