DORCHESTER COUNTY, S.C. (WCBD) – Deputies say a blood trail helped them track down a suspect during a ‘suspicious activity’ call late Saturday night.
According to the Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office, a deputy located three people inside a vehicle in the area of Windsor Hill Boulevard around 11:00 p.m.
Two of the suspects exited the vehicle to run from the deputy; once they were out of sight, the deputy reported hearing a gunshot.
The driver was detained and additional deputies were called to the scene for assistance. K-9 Deputy Jager located a cell phone, slip-on shoes, and two guns during a search of the area.
They say a blood trail was located near the items which helped them track down one of the suspects, later identified as 20-year-old Anthony Dupree. The man was suffering from a gunshot wound to the thigh.
Depree refused to speak about the incident. He was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
The driver, John Latra Bond, 20, was arrested and charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana and possession of a schedule II controlled substance. He was booked into the LC Knight Dorchester County Detention Center.
Deputies say additional charges are likely. The other passenger was not located and a suspect description was not provided.
