Two charged in Monday night shooting

Two men have been charged in a shooting that occurred Monday night on a dirt road off of Highway 246 N between Cokesbury and Stony Point.

According to a report from the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office, police were dispatched to Self Regional Medical Center in reference to a man, later identified as Dexter Raynard Norman Jr., 20, of 328 Greenbriar Drive, being shot. Norman’s mother called 911 and told dispatchers that her son was being transported to the hospital by someone else.

Investigators say that Norman was picked up at his house by three individuals, one of whom was later identified as Artavious Mark Abney, 17, of 316 Greenwbriar Drive. The four men went to the dirt road where investigators say they were all consuming alcohol and smoking marijuana. At some point, investigators say, Norman and Abney got into an altercation and shot each other. Norman was shot in the front of his neck and upper right arm.

Investigators say that, after questioning Norman, they went to a residence on Willowbrook Road and questioned one of the other individuals that was in the vehicle. While at the residence, Abney was brought to investigators by his father, who told police that his son had been involved in the incident. Abney had a gunshot wound to the back of his neck. He was transported to Self Regional Medical Center by Greenwood County EMS for treatment of the wound.

After investigators questioned all four parties involved, it was determined that the four men went to the dirt road to drink and smoke marijuana. Three of the men, including Abney and Norman, exited the vehicle to smoke. They got into an altercation and shot at each other. One bullet shattered the rear window of the vehicle. Norman was left lying on the ground and the other three fled the scene, according to the report. Investigators say that the four men were friends and that the argument appears to have been over drugs.

Investigators say they recovered one of the weapons used in the shooting on Tuesday morning just outside the hospital and are still searching for the second weapon.

Both Abney and Norman were treated and released from the hospital, at which time they were both arrested and charged with attempted murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

No person under the age 21 should have a gun. They are so lucky they are not dead today.
