BEECH ISLAND, SC (WFXG) - People who live on Blackstone Camp Road in Beech Island say their neighbors are like family. One neighbor says a feud between two boys who live on this street has gone too far.

The Davis family lives on the next lot. An Aiken County Sheriff’s Office police report shows they claim several people fired shots into their home Sunday, May 26. When the people inside heard multiple gun shots, they grabbed a shotgun and fired back, according to the arrest report.

Deputies say no one was able to identify the shooters. Investigators found at least 6 bullet holes in the home. No one was hurt.

One of the victims told deputies he’s had an ongoing issue with his neighbor - 19-year-old Damien Glover Jr. - said Glover threatened him with a handgun, according to the report.

Aiken County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested Glover Saturday, June 6. Friday, June 5, deputies arrested a woman neighbors say is his girlfriend, 17-year-old Caroline Gregory. They’re both charged with four counts of attempted murder and one count of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

Neighbors tell FOX 54 Glover recently graduated from high school - and is innocent. Another neighbor said the fighting needs to stop because it’s petty and the children that live in the neighborhood could get caught in the crossfire.
