Richland County sheriff’s deputies are investigating a shooting that occurred early Sunday morning after one woman was wounded by the gunfire.
Sgt. Kevin Lawrence, a department spokesman, said deputies responded to the 2300 block of Hertford Drive off Cunningham Road at 2 a.m. to a shots-fired call.
When deputies arrived, several individuals were fleeing from the area, Lawrence said. Deputies spoke with one woman who was fleeing the area because she said she heard several shots fired outside and inside of the residence.
That is when deputies, and the victim, realized she had been shot in the lower body, Lawrence said. The victim was transported to a local hospital with non life-threatening injuries to receive treatment. There were no other injuries reported.
Sheriff’s deputies are continuing to investigate the incident to determine a motive and a suspect, or suspects, in connection with the shooting.
Anyone with information regarding the incident should call CrimeStoppers at 1 (888)-CRIME-SC.
