Editor’s note: An earlier version of this story, based on reports from the sheriff’s office, incorrectly stated that the victim had been shot at the Club 74. York County Sheriff Kevin Tolson and a police report said deputies were dispatched to Club 74 in reference to a shooting. Tolson and Capt. Carson Neely of the sheriff’s office Criminal Investigation Division said the investigation has shown the shooting happened in the area nearby, but not at the club.

A man was shot Sunday near Rock Hill, police said.

The shooting happened around 2 a.m. near Club 74 in the 1000 block of Archer Drive, said Trent Faris, York County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson.

The victim, 38, from Rock Hill, was located at Piedmont Medical Center with what appeared to be three gunshot wounds, Faris said. The man was driven from the scene to the hospital in a private vehicle after the shooting, Faris said.

He remains hospitalized but his condition is unclear.

Deputies went to the club after a 911 call reported the shooting, according to Faris and a sheriff’s office incident report. About 250 people were inside and outside the club when police arrived, deputies said.

The club is off Blackmon Road, east of the Rock Hill city limits.

No other injuries were reported.

Officers said they had trouble getting cooperation from people at the scene. The building was evacuated to continue the investigation and to preserve evidence, police said.

The sheriff’s office criminal investigation division also responded to both the club and the hospital. No suspects were found, police said.

Faris said the shooting remains under investigation.
