Earlier this week, two Coleman Avenue residents were hit by gunfire after someone shot into their home. A Magnolia Street home was also hit with gunfire on Monday.

Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office Maj. Rene Williams said he’s not certain if the shootings are connected because the investigation is ongoing.

An Armstrong Terrace couple called law enforcement after hearing multiple gunshots at 12:33 a.m. Thursday.

The man and the woman went to the floor until the shooting stopped, an incident report states.

The home next door to the Magnolia Street residence also received damage from gunfire.
