GEORGETOWN COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - Deputies are investigating after a woman reported she was struck by a bullet at a home in Georgetown County.

According to the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office, a 20-year-old woman told emergency room personnel at Tidelands Georgetown Memorial Hospital that she had been struck by a bullet at a home on Pennyroyal Road.

“The woman had suffered an injury to her scalp,” GCSO officials said."She was transferred to the Medical University of South Carolina for treatment."

A report states the woman said she heard three “pops” outside the house before feeling pain in her head and seeing blood.

“After the third ‘pop’ she said she noticed a hole in a television screen,” the sheriff’s office said."The hole in the TV screen is the only evidence of damage to the house obtained thus far."

Investigators said they are still determining the cause of the TV set’s damage and the woman’s injury.
