JONESVILLE — The Jonesville Police Department and the Union County Sheriff’s Office are working together to investigate a shooting incident that left one man wounded late Saturday afternoon.
Union County Sheriff David Taylor said Monday that a call came in to 911 at 5:04 p.m. Saturday that an individual had been shot and was lying in a yard on Webber Street in Jonesville. Taylor said deputies from his office and officers from the Jonesville Police Department were dispatched to the scene along with Union County EMS. He said when they arrived, law enforcement and emergency personnel found the victim, who he described as a 28 year old male, lying in the yard bleeding from wounds on the right side of his body under the arm area.
Taylor said the victim was airlifted to Spartanburg Regional Medical Center where he remained in stable condition as of Monday morning.
While the sheriff’s office is assisting in the investigation, since the shooting apparently took place in Jonesville, the Jonesville Police Department is the lead law enforcement agency on the case.
Jonesville Police Chief Carl Jennings said Monday that while the victim was found on Webber Street, the shooting apparently took place elsewhere, though the crime scene has yet to determined.
“We don’t have a crime scene,” Jennings said. “We went back out to Franklin Street yesterday (Sunday) where a witness said the victim was shot and then drove on a moped to Webber Street where he collapsed.
“We went back to Franklin Street Sunday with a metal detector to see if we could find any spell shell cartridges, but we didn’t find any,” he said. “We also checked the houses for bullet holes and we didn’t find any, either. We also didn’t find any sign of blood.”
Jennings said the victim was shot once and that the bullet passed through his body, causing an entry wound and an exit wound.
A detective with the sheriff’s office was sent up to Spartanburg Regional to question the victim, but Jennings said the interview did not produce any information identifying a suspect in the shooting.
Jennings and Taylor both said the investigation is continuing and asked for the public’s cooperation in solving the case.
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Crimestoppers at 864-427-0800.
