Shots were fired at two Orangeburg-area homes early Thursday morning. No one was injured.

Around 1:30 a.m. Thursday, bullets flew into a Coburg Lane residence, according to a sheriff's office incident report.

The gunshots woke up the four residents, including a 2-year-old and 9-year-old.

One of the residents believes the shooting may have stemmed from previous altercations he had with a male.

About two hours later, a Cherry Hill Road home occupied by ten individuals, including five juveniles, was also shot.

There’s no indication the incidents are related.

Someone stole a broken vehicle from an Ellis Avenue residence.

The owner last saw the green 2000 Ford Explorer on Labor Day afternoon. It was parked outside of his mother's house on Ellis, according to an ODPS incident report.

He went back to the residence Wednesday afternoon and the vehicle was gone.

The owner says the Explorer must have been towed because it will not start. The locks were also not in proper working order.

There were no items in the vehicle when it was taken.

The vehicle is valued at $5,000, according to the report.
