Man Shoots Patient Inside South Carolina ER

LAURINBURG Police say a gunman shot a patient at a hospital in Laurinburg and then tried to shoot the man's girlfriend.

The gunfire followed a fight at a club on U.S. 401 in McColl, S.C., early yesterday.

Laurinburg police Capt. Kim Monroe said Wayne "Wolf" Simmons, the father of one of the women in the club fight, came to Scotland Memorial Hospital and entered the room of Domario Covington, who was being treated at the hospital for injuries from the club fight, which his girlfriend had been involved in.

Monroe accused Simmons of shooting Covington several times in the upper body, then trying to shoot Covington's girlfriend, but the gun didn't fire.

Simmons was arrested in the hospital parking lot.

Covington was in critical but stable condition.

Police said Simmons suffered a heart attack after the incident and was transferred to a hospital in Charlotte. Monroe says that when Simmons is released, he'll face several charges, including attempted murder.
