DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Officials with the Dorchester County Sheriff's Office say law enforcement surrounded a home near Ashley Phosphate Road after receiving a report that a gun had been fired in a domestic situation Wednesday night.
Around 8:10 p.m., deputies responded to a home in the 8000 block of Planters Knoll.
According to DCSO Maj. Tony Phinney, deputies received information that a gun was fired at the home, and a woman was able to leave the residence uninjured.
