Members of the Walterboro Police Department are continuing their investigation into a Monday morning shooting that sent one man to the hospital.
Monday at about 7:50 a.m. members of the police department were sent to the Emergency Department of the Colleton Medical Center where a gunshot victim was undergoing treatment.
The man was brought to the medical center in a private car.
Officers had a chance to interview the man, but he would not provide a lot of information about the incident. He did disclose that it had occurred at a residence in the 100 block of Kelly Street.
Investigators went to the residence and spoke to a witness who told them that she had been involved in an argument with her son, at which point her other son intervened, and the two brothers got into an argument.
The suspect, Lymik Pierce, then allegedly shot his brother and fled the scene.
Officers are continuing to search for the shooting suspect.
