GEORGETOWN COUNTY, S.C. (WMBF) – The Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office is continuing its investigation into what caused a woman’s mysterious head wound.

Jason Lesley, Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson, said a 20-year-old Georgetown woman showed up at Tidelands Georgetown Memorial Hospital Thursday night and claimed that she had been hit by a bullet at her home on Pennyroyal Road.

Lesley said she suffered an injury to her scalp and was taken to the Medical University of South Carolina for treatment.

The woman told deputies that she heard three “pops” outside of her house and then felt a pain in her head and saw blood. She said after the third “pop” she noticed a hole in the television screen.

Lesley said the hole in the TV screen is the only evidence of damage to her house. Investigators are still determining the cause of the damage and the woman’s head injury.
