(WCSC) -

A law enforcement organization is offering an award for information on anyone responsible for two shootings in Beaufort County.

Friday, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives announced it is offing a reward of up to $5000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for multiple shootings in Beaufort, S.C., according to a statement from ATF spokesperson Gerod King.  

King says on May 15, at approximately 12:15 a.m., Beaufort Police Department Officers responded to a report of shots fired in the 1000 block of Monson Street. Officers located a vehicle parked in front of a residence that was shot several times.

Witnesses described seeing a gray or silver colored Chevy sedan leaving the scene.

The same day, at approximately 9:15 p.m., witnesses say a dark-colored Ford SUV drove past a residence on Hamar Street.  

The passenger of the SUV fired multiple shots at people sitting inside a parked vehicle in the residence’s driveway before speeding off.

One person inside of the vehicle received a non-life threating gunshot to the leg. 

These incidents are being investigated by ATF and the BPD.

Anyone with information about these crimes should contact ATF at 1-800-ATF-GUNS (800-283-4867), email ATFTips@atf.gov, or contact ATF through its website at www.atf.gov/contact/atf-tips.   

Additionally, tips may be provided to BPD Investigator Raley at 843-322-7914.
