Released from the Anderson County Sheriff's Office.

On September 17, 2019 deputies with the Anderson County Sheriff's Office responded to Old Trail Road in Anderson in reference to a shooting incident.

When deputies arrived on scene they found one victim that was shot in the upper leg.  One deputy noticed that the wound appeared to be an arterial bleed and applied a tourniquet to help stop the bleeding.

The victim was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries and is expected to make a full recovery.

During the investigation, deputies and detectives were able to gather enough evidence to charge Morris J Wood Jr for Attempted Murder.  Wood is currently at the Anderson County Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing.
