ALLENDALE, S.C. - Police in Allendale say they have had three shootings in the town in the past week.

Police Chief John Sullivan told WRDW-TV that a man was killed in a shooting Friday night.

On Wednesday, a shooting in Allendale sent one person to the hospital. Police are also investigating a third shooting early Saturday in the town of 3,300 that was only reported after someone found bullet casings at the Hardee's restaurant.

Sullivan thinks the shootings are all unrelated. The chief is increasing patrols in the town.

Investigators are looking for a pewter-colored GMC Yukon in connection with the fatal shooting Friday night.
