CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - A woman is now facing an attempted murder charge after a shooting at the Hardee’s in West Ashley on Monday afternoon.
Joslin Seabrook, 27, was in an argument with the victim, according to the incident report. When deputies arrived on scene, they found that Seabrook had shot another woman in the hand with her black semi-automatic handgun, the report stated.
The Charleston County Sheriff’s Office said just after 3:30 p.m., deputies responded to a report of a shooting at the restaurant in the 2109 Savannah Highway.
Seabrook told deputies that she had just received her food from the drive-thru window, but the victim had parked her blue SUV in the oncoming lane blocking Seabrook’s vehicle. Seabrook said she tried to get the victim to move the car from the lane and that’s when the fight began, according to the report.
Seabrook then went back to her vehicle and got her handgun, the report stated. Seabrook then told deputies she pointed the gun at the victim and the victim fought with her for control of the weapon. During the fight, Seabrook told deputies her finger was inside the trigger guard when the gun discharged and the victim was struck by a bullet in the finger, according to the incident report.
“The victim was transported to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries,” CCSO officials said.
