A 23-year-old man suffered non-life threatening injuries after he was shot in the legs at 2:11 a.m. Saturday in the 2300 block of Mead St.

Officers with the Mount Pleasant Police Department were in the area monitoring pedestrian traffic because of the number of people leaving area taverns, according to a press release by the Mount Pleasant Police Department.

Just after bar close, officers heard the sound of gunshot and found a man laying on Mead Street just south of 23rd Street. The man had been shot in both legs, but he was conscious and alert. Rescue workers took the man to Ascension-All Saints Hospital.

He is in stable condition. Police are still investigating the incident. The name of the man was not released.
