A blood trail Tuesday night in the parking lot of a Greenwood club served as evidence of the shooting that took place there earlier, according to a news release from the Greenwood County Sheriff's Office.

At 8:48 p.m., 911 dispatchers took a call about multiple gunshots coming from the area of H2O Ultra Lounge at 1601 Highway 72/221 E., the Wednesday morning news release said. When deputies arrived on scene minutes later, they found a blood trail in the parking lot.

Deputies learned a man with a gunshot wound had been taken to the emergency room of an area hospital. Officers secured the scene at the lounge and the crime scene unit went to help collect evidence.

A motive for the shooting is unknown and the investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is urged to call the sheriff's office at 864-942-8632 or 864-942-8600, call Crime Stoppers at 888-274-6372, or message the sheriff's office on Facebook at facebook.com/GwdCSO/.
