Someone fired five shots at a Rainfall Road family’s home late Monday night, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.

No one was injured during the shooting, which took place at 10:54 p.m.

A woman told deputies that she was sitting in her bedroom when she heard five loud pops that sounded like fireworks.

She saw smoke coming from behind her dresser and heard a car leaving at a high rate of speed.

She checked on the other occupants in her home, which included two 17-year-olds and two younger children.

Deputies discovered that two bullets entered the home through the outside wall and came through the inside wall, becoming lodged in the wooden dresser in the woman’s bedroom.

In other reports:

• A Bass Drive man reported Monday that someone stole his 2017 black trailer with a brown wooden floor from Wyndham Resorts in Santee. The trailer is valued at $1,011.

• A Midlands woman reported Monday that her daughter recently admitted during a counseling session that someone abused her when she was younger, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.

A deputy spoke with an Orangeburg man named by the woman.

The incident report states that when the deputy asked the man about the allegations, he responded saying he plays “games” with the woman’s daughter. He said the games include “vampire” and others, the incident report states.

The man did not admit or deny kissing and touching the woman’s daughter inappropriately, the incident report states.

The deputy noted in the report that the man continued to say, “I am not going to deny anything, I do play games with the children.”

The man allegedly told the deputy that someone else had accused him of similar conduct in the past and that he wasn’t going to deny that either.

The criminal investigation division is now looking into the case and a forensic interview will take place with the alleged victim.

The stolen truck is a 1998 blue Ford F150 with a white hood. It is not operational and was sitting on a two-wheel vehicle dolly.

Someone took both the truck and the dolly. The items are valued at $2,000.
