DARLINGTON COUNTY, S.C. (WBTW) — A juvenile has been arrested after shots were fired Thursday at a home in Darlington County, according to the Darlington County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies were called to the 1500 block of Syracuse Community Road after it was reported that homeowners came home and found someone there, according to the sheriff’s office. Shots were fired and the homeowners fled.

It was thought that subjects were still in the home when law enforcement arrived, but no one was found at the home.

Several firearms were also found during the investigation, according to Maj. David Young with the sheriff’s office. Young said the juvenile’s identity will not be released due to his age.

This is at least the second shooting to happen on Syracuse Community Road in the last several weeks. On August 5, 64-year-old Preston Hickman, Sr. was killed and another person was taken to a hospital. Two juveniles were taken into custody in relation to the shooting.
