After receiving a 911 call, sheriff’s deputies went to 340 Aiken Road, where a woman told deputies that the suspect approached her and the other victims brandishing a handgun. The 911 caller told deputies that the suspect fired two shots toward his girlfriend and her children as they sat in a vehicle and then fired again as she ran toward an apartment entrance.

One victim suffered injuries resulting from a physical assault by the suspect. She was treated at Aiken Regional Hospital for her injuries.

The suspect had fled the area in a vehicle before deputies arrived in the area.

Sheriff’s investigators are obtaining warrants for attempted murder and other charges.

Won't take long to find him

Won't take long to find him with such a bang up description here! It was the guy's girlfriend that he shot about a name? A description? Vechicle description? Stories like these are useless...
