SPARTANBURG, S.C. (WSPA) – Cowpens Police are trying to figure out the circumstances around a shootout that happened between two moving cars. It all started on Goforth Street last Thursday. As of Tuesday, some arrests have been made. But as they told 7 News, there are still a lot of pieces to put together.

Officers with the Cowpens Police Department told us a shootout between two cars started on Goforth Street around 4:15 P.M. Thursday. Then, the cars reportedly turned onto Foster Street and ended about two miles later on Cannons Campground Road.

Police told us they made some arrests in connection with this Tuesday. That includes Izaiah Kirby, 18, who has been charged with two counts of attempted murder along with possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

No one was hurt.
