JAMES ISLAND — A woman was shot in the leg outside of a nightclub early Saturday morning.

Deputies responded to the Washington's Sports Bar and Grill at 1767 Grimball Road about 12:25 a.m. Saturday, Maj. John Clark said.

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

One witness saw a trail of blood on the nightclub floor and announced that someone was bleeding. The 47-year-old victim 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.
