Detectives continue search for information on 5-year-old's shooting death

WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) - The Charleston County Sheriff's Office is asking the public's help for information on the 2011 shooting death of a 5-year-old girl in West Ashley.

Friday marks two years since the shooting death of Allison Griffor who investigators say was shot during an attempted home invasion in the early morning hours of Oct. 25, 2011 at a house on 1733 Piepont Ave.

"We feel confident that we know who did this and they are serving time," a sheriff's office report stated on Thursday."But we are not able to bring charges at this time and are therefore renewing pleas for anyone with information in the case to contact investigators at 843-202-1700 or Crime Stoppers at 843-554-1111."

On Oct. 25, 2011, Allison Griffor was sleeping in her home when investigators say spray from a .12-gauge shotgun came through the front door during the middle of the night.

The girl's father, William Griffor, told deputies he and his wife heard someone kicking at the door around 1 a.m.

When he walked towards the front door, the intruder opened fire. Some of the pellets hit Allison and she died in the hospital several days later.

Since Allison's death, the Griffor family has moved to another state.
