An unknown assailant shot a Camden man at a Chestnut Street home just before 7 p.m. Friday. EMS later transported the victim to KershawHealth; he was then flown to a Columbia-area hospital.

Camden Police Department (CPD) officers arriving on the scene saw the victim --whose address is listed on Red Hill Road -- and two other men leaving the area to find the nearest hospital. According to a CPD incident report and press release, the victim, who was soaked in blood, told officers he had been shot in the abdomen by an unknown subject with a handgun. The other two men told officer they had left the victim at the home while they went to another location. When they returned, the victim told them he’d been shot.

Officers reported finding two bullet holes in a storm door at the home and the bottom glass plane shattered.

The CPD is still investigating the incident.

The CPD reported the following other incidents during the period of Nov. 4-10:

A man walked out of a Camden retail store with two bunk beds, worth more than $250. The man told an employee who asked for a receipt that his wife had it and proceeded to walk out of the store and load the beds into his truck.

A 27-year-old woman tried to steal $95 in meat from a Camden retail store.

Camden officers also assisted other agencies, served bench warrants and dealt with two DUI and assault; and one CDV, trespass of real property, larceny, trespass after notice, begging, drug paraphernalia, shoplifting and simple marijuana.


A Camden man allegedly threatened to shoot a woman’s face off with a 12-gauge pump-action gun after he walked into her apartment asking for food, money and drugs.

According to a Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) report, two unidentified men walked into the residence and took the suspect out of the home, before the suspect kicked the woman’s tires and jumped on the hood of her vehicle.

The man originally told police, however, that the woman “flipped-out” and threw a drink on him. When the deputy asked him about jumping on the woman’s vehicle, he denied it. The deputy then asked to see his shoe, which matched the prints on the vehicle. Deputies arrested the man for malicious injury to personal property and giving false information to police, because he gave deputies false information about his identity.

The KCSO reported the following other incidents during the period of Nov. 4-10:

Deputies arrested a 19-year-old Camden man for shoplifting and open container and issued him a trespassing notice after he was caught swerving on U.S. 521. The man also allegedly stole an 18-pack of beer from a gas station and drank one in the station’s bathroom before leaving.

A woman reported that her estranged husband had taken video and/or photos of women changing out of their swimsuits in 2012 and earlier this year. The woman said she and her husband are in the process of divorcing and she wasn’t sure that she wanted her daughters around him.

A Kershaw County high school student reported that she was sexually assaulted by two male students at the school. The girl reported she was inappropriately touched by both subjects on various days.

A Camden man allegedly punched out the windshield of his girlfriend’s vehicle, then took the vehicle without her permission and wrecked it. The S.C. Highway Patrol charged the man with DUI.

A Camden man reported that his ex-girlfriend stole $6,500 worth of car parts and tools from his Baron DeKalb Road home.

Someone stole five vehicles worth $22,000 from a Quail Circle address in Lugoff.

Someone stole $2,500 worth of china from a home on Eskie Dixon Road, Elgin.
