WALTERBORO, SC (WCSC) -

The victim said the car then started to pull off as several gunshots were fired from the car. The victim said she hit the floor and when the gunfire ceased, she looked up and saw bullet holes through the door and in the walls.

The victim told police she was unsure of the make and color of the vehicle. Police also noted two vehicles parked outside were also hit by gunshots.

Police said another shooting was reported the next night at 307 Breland Street, around 1:30 a.m. Sunday. The victim told officers she was getting ready to turn in for the night when she heard shots ripping threw her window and front door.

Officers said they collected six .40 caliber casings from the roadway and a 12-gauge silicate from the front porch of the home.

The victim said she did not see the suspects, but her daughter's friend said he did not hear shots but saw a dark purple car make a right turn onto Francis Street from Breland Street.

The investigations are ongoing. If you have any information, call Walterboro Public Safety at (843) 549-1811.
