Walterboro woman left shaken by apparent drive-by

WALTERBORO, SC (WCSC) - A Walterboro woman was left shaken by an apparent drive-by shooting early Tuesday morning, authorities say.

Walterboro Public Safety officers were dispatched to the Walterboro Village on Green Pond Highway minutes before 1 a.m. after receiving reports of a shooting.  When they arrived, they found a 34-year-old woman "visibly shaken and upset."

The woman told officers she was talking on her cell phone while walking towards the road when a blue sedan heading towards South Jefffries Boulevard passed by.  The woman said all of a sudden, the vehicle stopped, turned around, and began speeding towards her.

As the vehicle approached, the woman said she heard a gunshot so she began to run, at which time she heard another shot.  The woman said she wasn't sure if the suspect was shooting at her or just firing shots into the air.

No one was injured.  The shooting is under investigation.
