A teen was assaulted by three people and shot in the leg Monday, according to an Horry County police report.

Around 3:50 p.m. Monday, police responded to Conway Medical Center for a shooting complaint.

The 19-year-old victim said he was walking down State Highway 319 when an unknown vehicle stopped and three people exited the vehicle and started chasing him.

He said the suspects knocked him out and that he awoke in the woods, the report said.

A driver saw him limping down the highway and gave him a ride to the hospital.

At the hospital, the doctor confirmed the victim had been shot in the leg. Police also saw there was an apparent footprint on the side of his face and that he had a busted lip.

The victim said he did not want to pursue charges.
