GEORGETOWN COUNTY, S.C. (WBTW) — A 15-year-old Georgetown County boy has been taken into custody after allegedly firing a rifle shot that hit his adoptive’s mother’s vehicle on Sunday, authorities said.

The woman was hit by glass during the incident on Rose Hill Road, but her injuries did not appear to be life-threatening, according to the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office.

The sheriff’s office said the woman told deputies that she was returning home from the Rose Hill Baptist Church when the teen fired a shot from rife that hit her driver’s side window. She returned to the church after the incident, where she was met by law enforcement and emergency medical personnel.  

Investigators later found three firearms in the yard, along with evidence that bullets had been fired into the unoccupied house before the woman arrived home, the sheriff’s office said.
