An Orangeburg man is accused of shooting more than a dozen times at another man last month, Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell announced on Thursday.

“Fortunately, he’s either a bad shot or the victim is extremely lucky, but it’s probably both,” Ravenell said.

Guyron Garner, 22, has been charged with attempted murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

The Mill Street man was taken into custody on Wednesday.

Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office investigators were informed of the incident last month when a 60-year-old man said that he had gotten into an argument with Garner on April 25 about an undisclosed incident that occurred previously.

The 60-year-old alleged that Garner later broke into a relative’s home to find the man and continue the argument, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.

When Garner left, the man returned to his own Faigler Circle home. He told deputies he noticed Garner standing in the street with a gun.

The sheriff’s office believes Garner fired at least a dozen times as 12 shell casings were located by investigators in front of the man’s home.

The man said he wasn’t struck and fired a single round into the air from his own handgun to encourage Garner to leave, the report said.

During a hearing on Thursday, bond was denied on Garner.

Two outstanding 2018 bench warrants for forgery and domestic violence in unrelated cases were also served on him.
