Charleston authorities are investigating two shootings this weekend.

The first happened about 12:25 a.m. Saturday at Washington's Sports Bar and Grill at 1767 Grimball Road on James Island, Maj. John Clark said.

Witnesses told investigators an unknown person fired six to seven shots from the road in front of the nightclub. Everyone inside the club either dropped to the ground or ran toward the back, according to an incident report released Monday.

One witness saw a trail of blood on the nightclub floor and announced that someone was bleeding. The 47-year-old victim, Karen Glover of Johns Island, then noticed she had been shot in the right leg, according to the report.

Deputies noticed that three vehicles were hit by gunfire and that another round pierced a screen door at the club.

Most witnesses said they did not see a suspect and didn't know what kind of vehicle the person may have been driving, though one said he saw a dark, either black or blue, Ford Expedition driving away from the scene toward Riverland Drive.

The shooting is under investigation, Clark said.

Charleston police responded to a shooting Sunday on Meeting Street.

Officers found 19-year-old Matthew Lavard Campbell of Charleston in front of 492 Meeting St. with a gunshot wound to his leg, according to an incident report.

Department spokesman Charles Francis said the shooting happened in the area of Hanover and Columbus streets about 10:40 p.m.

The suspect is a black male, about 5-foot-8, 200 pounds and bald. He wore black pants and a white T-shirt, Francis said.
