Greenwood City Police responded to a shooting about 6 p.m. Thursday in which a man was apparently shot in the buttocks.
While details were scarce, Lt. Jeff Crisp, a Greenwood Police Department investigator, said an individual was transported to Self Regional Medical Center in stable condition with a gunshot wound to the buttocks.
According to the woman who made the 911 call about 6 p.m., the victim was a 21-year-old man from the neighborhood. The woman said the victim ran to her home and fell in her yard, telling her to call an ambulance.
Crisp declined to release the victim’s name, role in the shooting or a possible motive for the shooting.
Numerous shell-casing markers were visible between 104 and 106 Spring Valley Road.
"We can't say how many shooters there were," Crisp said. "It could be one person shooting a number of bullets with the same caliber or five people shooting fewer times with the same caliber."
Crisp said the Police department did not have any suspects in custody, but does have information it is pursuing.
"It's still very early in the investigation, obviously," Crisp said.
