A man was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries early Sunday after he was found shot near a club in rural Berkeley County.

Berkeley County sheriff's deputies found the man about 2 a.m. near the Paradise Lounge on S.C. Highway 27 in the area of Pringletown and Ridgeville, spokesman Dan Moon said.

Moon said the man who was shot refused to talk to deputies. Deputies couldn't find any witnesses or suspects, he said.
