A man reported being shot in the leg at his home in Colleton County Wednesday night.

The Sheriff's Department reported receiving a call from the 117 Taylor St. area where Clyde Moore, 37, was on the front porch with an apparent small caliber gunshot wound to the leg.

Before being transported to the hospital, the victim stated that an unknown black male came to his door and when he stepped out of his residence, two other males tried to grab him and a struggle ensued. When he got away from them, one of them produced a small handgun and he was shot in the leg and they ran off. No other description was given of the suspects or vehicle involved, if any.

Moore said he did not know the identity of the suspects or what the motive for the shooting was. He was transported to the Colleton Regional Hospital. His wounds were not life-threatening.

This case is still being investigated. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Colleton County Sheriff's Office at (843) 549-2211.
