A 21-year-old woman is facing two attempted murder charges after a person was injured in a shooting incident just outside of Orangeburg on Thursday night.

The Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office announced on Monday that Angel Lashelle Goodwin, with addresses in Orangeburg and Santee, is in custody.

According to an incident report, deputies spoke with a man who was undergoing treatment for a gunshot wound to his abdomen at the Regional Medical Center.

He told deputies that he was walking down the street at about 10:30 p.m. when he saw a vehicle pull out at a high rate of speed.

A second vehicle followed the first vehicle and he heard gunshots ring out, he said.

“He felt he was hit and immediately grabbed his side,” a deputy wrote in a report.

A friend drove the injured man to the hospital.

A different man told deputies that he was in a vehicle accident at the intersection of Chestnut Street and Russell Street.

The woman who allegedly struck his vehicle drove away. She was accompanied by three men. Shots were fired from inside of the vehicle.

He told deputies that he spoke with the woman at a nearby store. She allegedly told him that she didn’t have insurance and not to call police, the incident report states.

He heard someone say, “Somebody got a gun!” and that’s when he and his three passengers ran to his vehicle.

He alleged that the woman returned to her vehicle and sped away as shots were fired from the vehicle at him.

Neither he nor his passengers were injured.

If convicted of attempted murder, Goodwin faces up to 30 years in prison on each charge.
