Deputies said they are looking for two people after they shot at a pedestrian then hit him with their car near Newberry on Sunday morning.
Newberry County deputies said about 2:45 a.m. the victim was walking along Highway 121 near Calvary Church Road when a car pulled up next to him, the passenger yelled at him then fired two shots at him.
