COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - A woman who was wounded after trying to leave the scene of a fight managed to walk into a nearby hospital on her own volition, according to the Richland County Sheriff's Department.

Sheriff's investigators said deputies responded to Providence Hospital on Sunday around 8 p.m. and found a woman suffering from a gunshot wound.
