1 person wounded in shooting at South Carolina plant

Officers say one person has been shot and wounded at an automotive parts plant in South Carolina.

Officers were called to a shooting at the Yanfeng Automotive plant in Fountain Inn shortly before 6 a.m. Friday.

Laurens County Sheriff Don Reynolds told local news outlets that one person was hurt but the injuries weren't life-threatening. Reynolds said officers are searching for a suspect.

About 100 employees were evacuated from the plant, which is just off Interstate 385 about 15 miles (24 kilometers) southeast of Greenville.

No other details were immediately available. A spokesman for the Laurens County Sheriff's Department did not immediately return phone messages Friday morning.
