A man told deputies someone riddled his car with bullets in the early hours of Friday on Highmarket Street west of Georgetown. 

An incident report says the victim, Aaron Lewis Edwards, told a deputy a car pulled up along his Dodge while he was driving down the 5000 block of Highmarket Street. Edwards heard a pop, and at first thought it was a flat tire until he heard several more pops as bullets struck his car. Edwards said he didn't see the shooter. He described the vehicle as light in color but didn't know the make or model. 

The report says the shooting occurred shortly after 2:20 a.m.

The deputy counted nine separate bullet holes in Edwards' car, stretching from the rear bumper to the dash, including one that went through the back windshield and struck the rear driver-side door. A back tire on the dodge had gone flat from a bullet hole.

Before meeting with Edwards, the deputy had collected shell casings scattered along Highmarket Street between the 5200 and 5500 blocks. 

Edwards identified a Pawleys Island man as a potential suspect. He told the deputy the man was "out to get him" over a shooting that happened several months ago in Pawleys Island.

Edwards said that earlier this week, he was walking down Highmarket Street when the man drove by. The man made shooting gestures toward him, Edwards said.

No charges have been filed against the man. The report describes the incident as attempted murder.
