Crime: Man receives bullet-graze wound to hip

Friday, October 6, 2017

A man received a bullet-graze wound to his hip and a woman’s vehicle was damaged after shots were fired in the 1900 block of East Third Street, according to police.

Greenville patrol officers responded to 1931 E. Third St., about 6:40 p.m. on Monday after a report that someone had been shot, according to Greenville Police Department spokeswoman Kristen Hunter. The victim left the scene before officers arrived.

Witnesses on scene provided false names for the victim but officers were able to identify him after he showed up to the hospital by private vehicle, Hunter said. The 22-year-old man had a bullet-graze wound to his hip.

The victim told officers he was checking the mail when someone started shooting at him, Hunter said. He told officers he did not want their assistance and refused to cooperate any further, she said.

A 2015 Nissan Altima owned by a 70-year-old woman was damaged in the lot by the gunfire, a case report shows. The vehicle sustained $800 in estimated damages.

Visitors reportedly rob apartment occupants 

Officers responded to shots fired in the area of Glendale Drive late Saturday and found an apartment window in the 600 building had been shot out, according to Kristen Hunter, police spokeswoman.

No one was home at the address, and witnesses told the officers that the woman who lives there had left the scene, Hunter said. Officers located the tenant a short distance away and conducted a traffic stop.

The woman told officers she had visitors over. Several of the visitors reportedly robbed others in the apartment of cash at gunpoint, Hunter said. No one was injured.

Hunter said the tenant could not explain how the window was shot out. The case remains under investigation.
