Five people sustained minor injuries Thursday night when a small compact vehicle drove by a house in the mid town area of Sumter firing multiple shots into the residence. Investigators say a small child was in the house at the time of the shooting and was grazed by a bullet.
Capt. Alvin Holston with the Sumter Police Department says,”There were two individuals on the outside of the residents at the time, that did sustain gunshot wounds -minor gunshot wounds to the lower leg, calf area. And some random shots that were fired toward the residence did in fact end up striking three individuals inside the residence. Both of them had received minor injuries – one to the hand area and one to the thigh area. And, there was a minor child that was present, but the child received what we would consider a grazed wound.”
The investigators are interviewing witnesses but have no motive or a suspect at this point. ***
