An 11-year-old girl and a 50-year-old woman are in the hospital after they were struck by objects during a fight that broke out on Sunday, according to officials with the Richland County Sheriff’s Department.
Lt. Curtis Wilson, a department spokesman, said sheriff’s deputies responded to the 2100 block of Faraway Drive near East Boundary Road after receiving a civil disturbance and shots fired call at 3 p.m. Sunday.
Wilson said nobody was reported to be injured from the gunfire, but the two female victims were struck by objects during the fight and transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Three suspects believed to be involved with the incident were taken into custody and are being held for questioning, according to Wilson.
