Sheriff’s Office searching for gunfire suspects

  • Tuesday, May 20, 2014

The Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s

assistance in identifying whoever fired shots at 79 Giles Road in the Oatland Community.

Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Carrie Cuthbertson said at approximately 1 a.m. Tuesday, deputies responded to the report of gun fire.

“The victim stated he was outside waiting on a female friend when a black sports utility vehicle (SUV) with out-of-state tags stopped in front of his residence. As the victim approached the vehicle, one male suspect exited the passenger side door and brandished what appeared to be a handgun,” Cuthbertson states. “After a brief altercation, the victim escaped to his residence.”

The first suspect is described as a black male, approximately 6’01” in height and heavy set.

The second suspect, the driver of the SUV, is described as a black female.

If anyone can identify either suspect or has any information regarding this incident, please contact the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office at 843-546-5101.
