The Regional Medical Center in Orangeburg, South Carolina, reported that the shooting took place at around 8:45 a.m. local time.


A nurse was hit and immediately taken into surgery. Thankfully, law enforcement was on the scene and managed to apprehend the shooter before things got worse. So far, the condition of the nurse has not been revealed.

ABC News reported that the shooter, whose name has not been disclosed, had been at the hospital the day before asking for mental health care while carrying a weapon, but he was turned away.


At that point, authorities took the man’s gun. Later, they told his girlfriend to bring him back on Friday for treatment. However, he showed up today – April 10 – with another weapon and randomly opened fire, wounding the nurse.

Democratic Rep. Gilda Cobb-Hunter of Orangeburg was the first person who shared details about the shooting.

After saying that the man had mental problems and all the details about his previous visit to the hospital, she asked for prayers for the nurse who was fighting for her life.


"We ask prayer for the shooter as well, because with mental challenges there are always demons that one is fighting," Cobb-Hunter added.

Soon after the incident, the emergency room of the Regional Medical Center was closed as deputies were investigating. The rest of the hospital kept open and operating.

Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenel pointed out that the shooter will be charged with assault and battery with intent to kill. He also said that when the police arrived at the scene, a hospital security guard had the shooter in custody already.
