No arrest has been made and the investigation continues into a mass shooting Sunday morning in Magnolia.

Police Chief Todd Dew said that four persons were shot, with one receiving serious injuries, when gunfire broke out about 1:02 a.m. Sunday during a large party in the 1000 block of West Monroe Street in Magnolia.

Dew said shell casings were recovered from what is believed to have been two semi-automatic handguns.

Columbia County Central Dispatch sent Magnolia police to the scene in reference to a “shots fired” call at 1:02 a.m.

Dew said about 300 or more people were present at a party that began around midnight.

“Multiple shots were reported fired in the mid-section and on the west end of West Monroe Street. Officers arrived and found four persons were hit by gunfire. They were transported to Magnolia Regional Medical Center for treatment of their wounds,” Dew said.

Two of the injured are Magnolia residents, and two are from Union County, Dew said.

None of the wounds was fatal but Dew described one of the injuries as serious.

Magnolia police are continuing to investigate the shooting.
