Someone shot a 47-year-old Rivelon Road woman in her right leg near her knee at 11:14 p.m. Sunday, according to an Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office incident report.

When deputies arrived, they noticed the front screen door and large front window had several bullet holes in them.

The woman told deputies the incident began when she saw lights from a vehicle shining into the bedroom window.

She peered from the blinds to see if she could recognize the vehicle, but she wasn’t able to determine the make and model of it.

A man, who was also in the residence, said the woman woke him up to say she saw a vehicle shining its lights in the window.

The woman went to the front door. She thought she heard someone knocking and asked who was there.

The man said that’s when he heard gunshots ring out and the woman ran back toward the man.

A week before this incident, residents at a Baxter Street home called deputies to report that someone shot at their home multiple times.

An hour after that, a family less than five miles away called to report their home and vehicle were shot. Members of the Breezy Drive family said that just before 1 a.m. Monday, Feb. 18, someone shot their home several times.

No one was injured in those incidents.

At around 3 a.m. on that same Monday, someone shot at a Coleman Avenue residence and two of the four people in the residence were hit.

The cases remain under investigation.

If anyone has any information on the incidents, they are asked to call the sheriff’s office at 803-534-3550 or Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC. Callers can remain anonymous.
