KERSHAW COUNTY, S.C. (WIS) - The Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) is looking for a “person of interest” in a shooting case.

Deputies said there isn’t a definitive suspect, but Rayford Lynn Ford, 49, is wanted for questioning.

The shooting happened on Westover Acres Lane in Lugoff around 8 p.m. Tuesday.

According to KCSO, one person is in the hospital with non-life threatening injuries after being shot in the leg.

“We believe this was an isolated incident that started as a fight between two men who knew each other,” Sheriff Lee Boan said. “It’s unclear exactly what happened that led to someone getting shot,”

If you have any information about the shooting or Ford’s whereabouts, you’re asked to contact KCSO at 803-425-1512 or 803-424-4000.
