Orangeburg County

Sheriff’s Office

An Orangeburg man is accused of shooting a woman in the face on Tuesday evening.

Tony Shavor Haynes, 32, of 189 Faglier Circle, has been charged with attempted murder.

The injured woman spoke with deputies from a hospital bed at the Regional Medical Center just after 7 p.m., according to a sheriff’s office incident report.

She told deputies that she and her boyfriend were lying in bed when Haynes allegedly entered the bedroom and began to argue about something.

She told deputies that Haynes appeared to be under the influence of an illegal substance

Haynes then allegedly “got in her face” and pulled a handgun, which he pointed down toward the bed.

The woman’s boyfriend alleges that when Haynes pointed a silver revolver at the woman, he got up and tried to move Haynes back.

That’s when the gun fired, the boyfriend claims.

If convicted, Haynes faces up to 30 years in prison.

Also on Friday, deputies charged Haynes with armed robbery, possession of a weapon by a person convicted of a violent felony and possession of a stolen pistol.

Those charges stem from an April 19, 2019 incident on Goff Avenue.

Arrest warrants allege Haynes went to a man’s residence, took his gun from him and then robbed him of $338.

Haynes appeared before Magistrate Robert Lake on Friday. Lake deferred setting bond to a circuit judge.
