A Harleyville man is accused of shooting into a vehicle, injuring a man’s foot, according to Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell.
“There were several people either in this car or around this business who could have been seriously injured as well or worse,” Ravenell said. “This is a complete lack of concern for life shown by this individual.”
Daniel Goodwin Jr., 26, has been charged with assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature in connection with the Feb. 5 incident.
Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office investigators were called to a location near Belleville Road where a man said he was shot in the foot while he was sitting in a car.
The driver of the car said the incident began just before 6 p.m. when she pulled into a nearby convenience store. Another motorist tried to ram her vehicle, she said.
She sped from the location, with the second vehicle following.
As they neared the Jamison Street area, someone in the second vehicle fired at least one round that struck the passenger door of her car where the victim was seated, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.
The victim was initially treated locally but later transferred to an undisclosed hospital.
Goodwin’s bond was set at $50,000. He faces up to 20 years in prison, if he’s convicted.
