Three victims were taken to the emergency room after a large fight broke out early Sunday, authorities said.

Richland County Sheriff's Deputies responded to an aggravated assault call in the 2400 block of Percival Road where they found three victims had been "struck by objects", Richland County Sheriff's Department spokesman Sgt. Curtis Wilson said.

It's not clear what the victims were hit with, but the three were taken to an emergency room to be treated for their injuries. Their conditions are not known.

Shortly after deputies arrived on the scene, they spotted a vehicle leaving the fight scene at a high rate of speed, Wilson said. 

After performing a traffic stop, they detained two suspects and found cocaine in the vehicle, Wilson said.

Wilson added, deputies are working to see if the two suspects are connected with assault on Percival Road.

The names of the two suspects have not been released.

Anyone with information regarding the assault is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
