VCTF investigating shooting on N. Hospital St.

The Greenwood County Violent Crimes Task Force is investigating an incident in which multiple shots were fired into a house along N. Hospital Street early Saturday morning.

According to a report from the Greenwood Police Department, police responded to 117 N. Hospital St. at about 3:30 a.m. Saturday morning after receiving a report of shots being fired into the residence. When police arrived, they observed multiple shell casings lying in the roadway and in the front yard of the residence. Police also observed three bullet holes in a front window as well as two bullet holes around the exterior of the window. Police observed multiple fresh shoe prints on the front door as if someone had been trying to kick in the door.

According to the report, there were two people inside the residence at the time of the shooting. Both people said they were sleeping prior to the shots being fired and could not identify any possible suspects in the attack. One of the residents told police that he hung out around Taggart Street sometimes and said he believed the attack to be in retaliation for the shooting on Spring Valley Road last Thursday night. Investigators say there is no evidence to support that claim at this time.

According to the report, police located the several projectiles from the shots lodged into the wall of the living room of the residence. Police located a projectile lodges approximately two feet above the headboard of the bed where the two residents were sleeping in addition to several other projectiles throughout the house. Police also located a bullet hole in a vehicle parked in front of the residence. The shell casings and projectiles found were from 9mm, .45 caliber and .380 caliber pistols.

The investigation into the incident is ongoing.
