A late-night party in Barnwell turned into chaos Sunday after gun shots rang out, injuring two men.
Shortly before 2:30 a.m., bullets were shot from outside an 8-foot-tall fence covered with black plastic surrounding the yard at 60 Camelia St. where a party was going on, according to Barnwell Police Chief Todd Gantt. At least four shots were fired, and a 30-year-old North Charleston man at the party was hit in the back. He was taken to the trauma center in Augusta.
A 59-year-old Barnwell man was hit in the chin with a possible ricochet. He was treated for a minor wound and released from Southern Palmetto Hospital in Barnwell.
Gantt said people at the party claimed they heard five shots, but only four shots have been confirmed. No arrests have been made, but Gantt said police are looking at possible suspects. He added that evidence is being sent to the State Law Enforcement Division.
