One person is hospitalized after a shooting Wednesday at a Walterboro towing and vehicle repair shop, officials say.

Thom Berry, spokesman for the State Law Enforcement Division (SLED), says the incident happened Wednesday afternoon at Tommie’s Auto & Diesel Repair and Towing on Jefferies Highway (U.S. Hwy. 15), just outside Walterboro.

SLED investigators say witnesses report there was a dispute between a customer and employees over a towing and service charge.

The dispute escalated, and one person was shot, SLED says.

The shooting victim is undergoing treatment at Trident Medical Center. The name and condition of the victim were not available as of 5 p.m. Monday, Berry says.

SLED agents are interviewing everyone who was at the scene. No arrests have been made at this time, Berry says.
