FLORENCE, S.C. (WBTW) — A 26-year-old Hartsville woman has been charged with attempted murder after deputies said that she shot a person Tuesday morning at a Florence motel.
Fantaga Tyleisa Denise Porter used a handgun to shoot a person, according to the Florence County Sheriff’s Office. The person was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive.
