Someone opened fire at Glenfield Apartments on Saturday, hitting a water main and disrupting service to some apartments.

Someone opened fire at an Orangeburg apartment complex on Saturday night, resulting in disrupted water service to four units.

No one was injured, Orangeburg Department of Public Safety Capt. Victor Cordon said.

Officers have not yet made an arrest in the case.

A Glenfield Apartments resident called officers to an apartment at 2450 Columbia Road at 9:39 p.m. Saturday to report that someone fired gunshots.

When officers arrived on the scene three minutes later, they saw “water flowing from all of the first-floor apartments” in a unit, according to a police incident report.

At one apartment, one bullet struck a lower window, more struck the front door and multiple bullets appeared to have skimmed the wall near the front door and in the brick wall under the window, a heavily redacted incident report states.

Also, a bullet struck a water main between units.

Officers recovered numerous shell casings from the grass in front of the apartments. The number of recovered shell casings was also redacted from the incident report.

Apartments on the second floor of the building weren’t damaged by gunfire.

A resident told officers that she heard multiple gunshots and believed the shooting was a result of an argument between other parties.

The resident told officers that “she heard the female say she was going to get someone to shoot up the place,” the report states.

The resident told officers that she saw a vehicle in the apartment complex that she hadn’t seen before. She told officers the color of the vehicle, but that was also redacted from the report.

While officers were at the scene, maintenance personnel arrived and shut off the water main to all of the units in the building.

If anyone has information about who opened fire at Glenfield Apartments on Saturday, Nov. 2, they are asked to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC. Callers don’t have to give their names.
