DARLINGTON COUNTY, S.C. (WBTW) — An investigation is underway after a person showed up at a hospital with a gunshot wound, according to Darlington County Sheriff James Hudson Jr.

Hudson said deputies and Darlington police are working together on the investigation and that the exaction location of the shooting remains unclear.

The person who was shot is expected to be OK but has been uncooperative with law enforcement and declined to pursue prosecution, Hudson said.

“The victim was uncooperative with law enforcement, signed a criminal withdrawal, and declined prosecution,” Hudson said. “This is a very common issue where the victim refuses to cooperate and is very frustrating for law enforcement.
