Investigators Looking For Who Shot Up A Lowcountry Home

Posted: Updated:
St. Helena Island, SC -

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office is investigating a shooting incident at a St. Helena home late Wednesday night.

   Deputies responded to the home at 79 Shiney Road at approximately 11:30 PM Wednesday night in reference to a report of shots fired.

  Upon arrival, deputies met with the 40-year old female homeowner and her 14-year old son who said an unknown person or persons had fired shots into their home from outside.

  The woman reported she was lying in bed when she heard the shots enter her home.

  She told investigators she dropped to the floor and crawled out to find her son, who had been in his bedroom.  No one was injured, but they found numerous holes in the living room wall of the home's living room.

   The victims were unable to provide any suspect description; however, the juvenile victim did report having recently been involved in a physical altercation with another juvenile subject, who did make threats to shoot the victim.

  No injuries were reported as a result of the shooting, and approximately $1,300 in estimated damages to the home was sustained.

   Anyone with information is asked to contact Investigator SSgt. J. Fraser at 843-255-3416 or Crimestoppers.
