Authorities responded to the Quality Inn on Jimmy Dyess Parkway near Interstate 20 at about 4:45 p.m. after shots were fired at the hotel, Columbia County sheriff’s Sgt. Russell Canterbury said.
A man who had been shot in the hand was taken to an area hospital with non life-threatening injuries, Canterbury said. The man, who has not been identified, did not give much detail about the incident before he was transported.
Police are looking for two black men driving a dark vehicle in connection to the shooting.
