A man was sitting in his car late Thursday night in the 1400 block of Longcreek Drive near I-20 in the St. Andrews area when another man stepped up and asked for directions.

Richland County Sheriff's Sergeant Curtis Wilson says, “And as this individual attempted to do that, the suspect then fired shots into the vehicle, striking the victim in the upper body.  The victim was able to drive away a short distance to the McDonald's on Broad River Road.”

Wilson says the man was taken to a hospital, and was last reported in stable condition.

No arrest yet in the shooting, which investigators think may have been an attempted robbery.
