GAFFNEY, S.C. (WSPA) — Police say a man is wanted on attempted murder charges in a shooting in Gaffney.

The police department said in a Facebook post that Jordan Keyshawn Smith is wanted and may be in the Spartanburg area.

Gaffney Police Chief Chris Skinner said Smith opened fired Saturday at people on Poplar Springs Drive. No one was hurt, Chief Skinner said. 

According to the police report, officers responded to South Poplar Springs Drive and West Buford Street and made contact with a woman in an SUV at a stop sign.

The woman told officers that Smith was her child’s father and said they had gotten into an argument at a home on South Poplar Springs Drive.

According to the report, the woman said she was taking their daughter to the car where her younger brother was and said Smith shot at her an their daughter.

The officer went to the home and found two .9mm Ruger shell casings in the road in front of the home, but Smith was no longer at the home.

The woman also told officers that she heard Smith say he was going to kill her as he was shooting.

Police officials initially said Smith was a suspect in a second shooting in the parking lot of Cantinita Mexican restaurant that same day, but Skinner said he is not a suspect in that case.

“We have three suspects in this case, which will not be named at this time, however, Jordan Keyshawn Smith is not one of them,” Skinner said. 

Skinner said Smith is wanted for three counts of attempted murder in the Poplar Springs Drive shooting.

Police said he’s armed and dangerous and urge people not to approach him.
