An individual was sent to the hospital with a gunshot wound after a shooting Tuesday afternoon, per officials.

Deputies say the shooting took place on Joe Black Road across from the Palmetto Trailer Park in Williamston.

Per officials, two people shot the male victim and then fled in a vehicle. They say the suspects are known to the agency and they are actively searching for them.
