Graniteville boy, 17, arrested

Girls say he pointed pellet gun at them

  • Follow Crime & courts

A 17-year-old Gloverville boy was arrested Wednesday after pointing a pellet gun at two girls, according to the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office.

One of the girls told officers that she was arguing with her sister in their home when Shawn Bernard Doby pointed a gun at them and said he would shoot them if they told anyone, according to incident reports.

The children’s caregiver heard what was happening and told Doby to drop the gun. He ran outside the house, and officers arrested him in the area Wednesday afternoon. Officers also found a black pellet gun in the barbecue pit near the home.

Doby was charged with two counts of pointing a fire arm and booked at the Aiken County Detention Center.

Sounds like a likely candidate for dumbobama's czar group. And it wouldn't make any difference if he is from Graniteville or Gloverville. Good writing and good editing.

A pellet gun is STILL NOT A

A pellet gun is STILL NOT A FIREARM. It does not have "fire" it actually propels, so they are lying. Hey if the cops lying to the public is OK to some here remember birds of a feather flock together. Let's get back to facts; we'll all be glad we did. Yes it was dumb but is it as dumb as the cops lying to the public? They are insulting our intelligence, and they are letting him get away with it cause the jury is not going to be able to sentence him to anything so the kid will walk
