Deputies: Vehicle shot up following argument in Hilton Head

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - The Berkeley County Sheriff's Office is investigating after a vehicle was hit by multiple gunshots after leaving a Hilton Head apartment complex Sunday afternoon.

According to a release, a Chrysler 300 was shot multiple times while traveling on Highway 278 after leaving Hilton Head Gardens just before 12 p.m. Officers searched the area, but nothing was found.

Deputies were called out to the victim's mother's home two hours later. Although it was first reported the vehicle was shot at while parked at the mother's house, it was later revealed the shooting happened earlier in the day.

The victim told deputies she went to the apartment complex to pick up a friend, who got into an argument with two men.

As the victim and her friend were leaving Hilton Head Gardens, the victim says they were followed by the two suspects in a white SUV.

Deputies say the suspects in the SUV then fired several rounds at the victim's car, shattering both rear windows and causing damage to the windshield and vehicle body.

No suspects have been identified, and no injuries were reported.

If you have any information on this incident, call Crime Stoppers at 843-554-1111.
