A man was shot multiple times Thursday night while sitting in his car off Longcreek Drive.

Sergeant Curtis Wilson with the Richland County Sheriff's Department says the suspect approached the man in his car and asked him for directions around 11:30 Thursday night.  The car was parked in the 1400 block of Longcreek Drive.

The victim began giving the directions when the suspect pulled out a gun and started firing, according to Wilson.  The victim was hit multiple times in the upper body but was able to get away.

He made it to a nearby McDonald's less than a mile away on Broad River Road and asked for help, according to Wilson.
