News

GREENWOOD, SC (WSPA) – Greenwood Police Department officials said three people were injured in two shootings that happened Thursday night and early Friday morning.

According to the police, officers responded to a shooting reported at Blyth Road and Grand Prix Court around 8 p.m.

Around that time, a male victim who had a non life-threatening wound to his leg arrived at the hospital. 

Witnesses told officers that shots were fired from a dark-colored vehicle that sped away toward New Market Street.

At around 1 a.m., officers were called to the same area on a shots fired call.

Callers told dispatch that two people were hurt, and when officers arrived they found a male and a female, both suffering from non life-threatening injuries. According to Jonathan Link, who is the public information officer for the Greenwood Police Department, the male had been shot in the foot, and the female had been shot in the calf. 

According to the police, witnesses described the incident as a drive-by shooting involving a light-colored, possibly white, sedan. 

“We want to stop them before…a young kid gets hit or somebody’s elderly grandmother, or somebody who’s not involved at all in this squabble ends up taking the brunt of the problem,” Link said. 

Anyone with information about either incident is asked to call 864-942-8407, contact police on their Facebook page, or submit an anonymous tip here
