COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - The Richland County Sheriff's Department is investigating after a woman was shot multiple times early Tuesday morning.

According to Lt. Chris Cowan with the Richland County Sheriff's Department, the shooting happened around 6am off Head Street. That's near Two Notch Road.

Investigators say the woman was shot multiple times in the upper body by an unknown man. They don't believe the shooting was domestic related.

Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott says that the suspect they're looking for was driving a white four-door car, believed to be a 1970's or 80's Cadillac or Oldsmobile with a cracked windshield.

Lott added witnesses saw the suspect and victim drive down Head Street, and when they reached 1228 Head Street, heard numerous gunshots and saw the victim fall to the ground.

Surveillance video from a nearby store shows a car driving away from the scene.

There is no word on the woman's condition.
