2 Richland County drive-by shootings leave 3 injured

Deputies are investigating two drive-by shootings that left three people injured.

The first shooting happened around 2:30 p.m. Sunday on the 100 block of Stanford Street, which is just off Fairfield Road north of Interstate 20, according to Lt. Curtis Wilson. A vehicle drove up to the home and someone inside the car fired multiple rounds, striking the male victim.

The victim was taken to Palmetto Health Richland Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, Wilson said.

The second shooting happened just before 2 a.m. Monday on the 1200 block of Metze Road, which is just off Broad River Road in the St. Andrews area, Wilson said. Deputies say multiple gunshots were fired into the home, striking two men inside.

Both men had non-life threatening injuries, Wilson said.

No arrests have been made in the shootings, and investigators are still trying to determine who is responsible.
