MCCLELLANVILLE, SC (WCSC) - Charleston County deputies are searching for two suspects who allegedly fired gunshots into a home occupied by six people over a possible case of "snitching."

Deputies say the shooting took place at a home on Old Collins Creek Road in McClellanville Wednesday around 9 p.m.

A report states four people where in the living room of their home when they heard gunfire outside and saw their front door window shatter. The family dropped to the floor and crawled to safety.

After the shooting, witnesses say a gray SUV was spotted leaving the scene.

Deputies say an unoccupied gray Isuzu Rodeo was found front first into a ditch at the intersection of Putman Drive at Old Collins Creek Road.

The victims told officers they think the shooting occurred because the suspects believe one of the victims "snitched" on a co-defendant in a pending case.

No one was injured in the shooting.

Authorities say they have two possible suspects in the case, but no arrests have been made at this time.

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