ALLENDALE, S.C. — Police in Allendale say they have had three shootings in the town in the past week.

Police Chief John Sullivan told WRDW-TV a man was killed in a shooting Friday night.

On Wednesday, a shooting in Allendale sent one person to the hospital. Police are also investigating a third shooting early Saturday in the town of 3,300 that was only reported after someone found bullet casings at the Hardee’s restaurant.

Sullivan thinks the shootings are all unrelated. The chief is increasing patrols in the town.

Investigators are looking for a pewter-colored GMC Yukon in connection with the fatal shooting Friday night.

Christmas Eve rains to dry up

If Wednesday seemed particularly wet and dreary, you would be right. The day broke the record for the wettest Christmas Eve that Augusta has ever had.
