About 1 a.m., Aiken County sheriff’s deputies were called about shots fired at the Aiken County Recreation Center at 917 Jefferson Davis Highway. Witnesses said the shooters fired from a white Chevrolet Impala. One man said the car struck the rear of his vehicle while fleeing, according to an incident report.

Two victims were found at the scene, one with a wound on his lower back and the other with a self-inflicted gunshot wound on his lower pelvis, the report said.

About 45 minutes later, deputies were called to the 200 block of Glen­wood Drive, where witnesses said a gray minivan had stopped in front of a home and fired several shots.

The home was occupied, but no injuries were reported. Deputies found bullet casings and a partially loaded pistol magazine on the asphalt in front of the home.

At 2:41 a.m., deputies were called to another shooting in the 100 block of Laurel Avenue. Witnesses said a white car drove by, firing several shots into a parked car. No one was hurt, according to the statement.

Deputies are investigating the shootings as separate incidents. Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s office at (803) 648-6811 or Crimestoppers of the Midlands at (888) CRIME-SC.

Democrats I assume, there is

Democrats I assume, there is more to come in this story.
Did they have concealed carry permits ?
It takes 90 plus days and at least 150.00
Not to mention a clean back ground.
I hope AC follows up on these 2 victims.
It will be good for a laugh.

Glenwood Drive, what city?

Glenwood Drive, what city? was it still Graniteville, or somewhere else? Laurel Avenue, Graniteville, or somewhere else? Please clarify? There has been a white impala involved in some criminal mischief at least once in our area, too....

AL, there are probably 1,000

AL, there are probably 1,000 white Chevy Impalas in the CSRA. Without a tag number, the car description is meaningless.

" The home was occupied, but

" The home was occupied, but no injuries were reported."

I am glad readers are so dumbed down by the schools we pay for that used to teach (not attempt to teach) grammar no longer care.

I am so glad the fire department did not have to respond to a home injury.

With that sentence I'm not sure I'd be criticizing anyone else's grammar...

corgimom, I am well aware of

corgimom, I am well aware of that, that is why I made the statement asking for clarification. As you well know, we get an undue number of fugitives returning here. Lo and behold, there was a white impala mentioned in another shooting, since then, too.

BTW, corgimom, drug sales

BTW, corgimom, drug sales were going on in broad daylight at our recreation center on the basketball court and at the gazebo (they were stashing them on the roof of the gazebo) back in the late 90's, I went inside the swimming center to call the police (I did not have a cell phone at the time) and the manager overheard me and headed toward the door, I was suspicious and followed him and he warned them off! They ran off in several different directions.
