Spartanburg police responded to a shooting outside of the Cook Out at 1620 John B. White Sr. Blvd. Friday night that sent one woman and five men to the hospital.

Officers responded to the scene at about 11:30 p.m. Friday, within minutes of someone reporting shots fired to 911.

As of 1 a.m. Saturday, all six people remained in the hospital and no suspects were in custody, Police Maj. Art Littlejohn told reporters at the scene.

The conditions of the victims were not immediately known, though investigators do not believe any of the injuries are life-threatening, Littlejohn said.

Some of the victims were taken to the hospital by EMS, while others were taken in private vehicles, Littlejohn said.

One Cook Out employee, who did not want to give her name, told the Herald-Journal that she was inside the restaurant near the milkshake machine when she heard a barrage of gunshots outside that lasted about 30 seconds. She said she looked outside and saw two groups of people shooting at each other.

When the shots rang out, the employees and customers sought cover, she said. The store’s manager directed employees to go to the back of the store.

Multiple evidence markers were in the restaurant’s parking lot and on the nearby sidewalk.

A white SUV parked in front of the nearby Dollar General had a bullet hole in the passenger side of the windshield. Littlejohn said several vehicles were damaged in the exchange of gunfire.

Littlejohn said he did not yet know what types of weapons were used.

As of 1 a.m., officers were still investigating and taking statements from witnesses. Littlejohn said police would welcome help from the public as the investigation runs its course.

“We would love anyone who happened to be on the scene or has information to share that with us,” he said.
