2 injured in shooting at Aiken apartment complex

AIKEN, SC (WFXG) -

Officers are still searching for a suspect that open fire in an Aiken apartment complex on Tuesday night.

Two people were injured in a shooting, according to the Aiken Department of Public Safety. 

"I heard it was a couple of people arguing about 40 dollars. So after the arguing I heard about 9 or 10 gunshots," said an anonymous woman.

Those gunshots are the reason she didn't want her identity known. He said it's also the reason that witnesses aren't giving information to the cops.

"It's basically like snitches," the woman said. "Nobody wants to snitch or people are basically scared to talk because nobody wants to get hurt over something that they had to do with."

Officers responded to the shooting at the Paces Run around 10:30 last night - they found the two men lying on the ground with gunshot wounds.

"There was a lot of people out there, and I actually saw one of the guys, lying on the ground," said the woman.

Officers say several dozen of people saw what was going on, but with out consistent information from witnesses and the victims, its hard for investigators to piece together what exactly happened.


The woman said she isn't exactly sure what happened, but she hopes the victims are okay and the violent crimes stop.

"I know one of the victims. He's not a bad guy at all. But they just need to put the guns down and stop all the black on black violence," she said.

The victims were transported to Georgia Regents Medical Center for treatment. 

Anyone with information can contact the Aiken Department of Public Safety at 803-642-7620 or Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
