GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Greenville County Sheriff's Office said that 11 people were shot in two related incidents early Sunday morning.

Deputies said that they responded to a call about a disturbance at The Red Planet club at 1310 Cedar Lane Road at about 3 a.m. When deputies arrived, they heard gunshots and found three people who had been shot. All three people were taken to the hospital.

At approximately 4 a.m., deputies said some of the people involved in the first incident gathered at a Lil Cricket/Valero gas station at the intersection of White Horse Road and Highway 124. Deputies said someone pulled up in a white vehicle and started firing shots at the group. Eight people were shot at that location. Deputies said the injuries to those eight people were mostly grazing wounds and that most of those people have been released from the hospital.

Investigators said they are interviewing people involved to figure out exactly what happened during the two incidents.

Deputies said of the 10 confirmed victims, four have been treated and released from an area hospital, while six others remain hospitalized. They said two of them are in serious condition.

Investigators said they have reason to believe an 11th person was wounded in the gunfire, but has not sought medical attention.

Anyone with information on the shootings was asked to call Greenville County Crime Stoppers at 23-CRIME.
