LADSON, S.C. (WCSC) - The Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a gunman who wounded two people Tuesday afternoon at the Department of Motor Vehicles office in Ladson.

Sheriff Duane Lewis described the person they are searching for as a man, about 6 feet tall with a slim build, about 18 to 25 years old wearing skinny jeans and a gray sweatshirt.

Deputies released a photo just before 3:30 p.m. of a man they call the suspect in the shooting.

He said deputies are searching for the gunman and asked people to stay clear of the area for at least an hour as the search continues.

Of the two victims, Lewis said it appeared that the first victim was the intended target and the second may have been an innocent bystander.

He estimated there were 40 law enforcement officers in the area searching for the shooter.

Berkeley County dispatchers received a call reporting a shooting at the DMV, located on Wimberly Drive, just after 1:30 p.m. Lewis said no DMV employees were injured.
