FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) – Florence Police responded to three separate shooting incidents in northern Florence Wednesday morning; one man was shot, but has been treated and released from the hospital.

Shortly after midnight, an anonymous caller reported that she heard six or seven shots around her residence near the 500 block of Brunson Street, according to Major Carlos Raines with Florence Police. When police arrived, they found a number of people standing around in the street.

While police were investigating that shooting, they received a call about another shooting nearby, in the 700 block of Oakland Avenue, Maj. Raines said. A home in that area was struck by gunfire, causing a window to be broken. A gunshot hole was also found in the hallway. No one was injured.

At about 5:30 a.m., police responded to a report of another shooting near Oakland Avenue and Royal Street.  A man was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was treated for a shoulder injury from the shooting and released, Maj. Raines said. The man told police that he was shot by several individuals in a car, but could not provide further details.

Police said the possible suspect was in a gray Nissan vehicle with Virginia tags.

Police are investigating these incidents, and are expected to release more information.
