GEORGETOWN COUNTY, S.C. (WMBF) – The Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office is investigating shots fired into a home for the second time in a month.

Deputies were called around 10 p.m. Thursday to a home on Lot Drive, where people inside the home said they were woken up by sounds of gunfire.

The people inside the home told authorities they heard about 15 total shots.

Deputies found the home was shot several times and found two bullets inside the home. One was inside the dresser in the main bedroom, and one was in the living room behind a TV stand, according to the incident report.

Investigators also found the victim’s truck had been hit three times by the gunfire.

“No one in the home knew of any person who would shoot up their home or why anyone would either,” the police report states.

It wasn’t the first time the home had been hit by bullets.

No one was hurt in either of the shootings.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call 843-546-5102.
