A Spartanburg man told Spartanburg County Sheriff's deputies that his van, with his 8-year-old grandson inside, was damaged by gunfire on Front Street early Sunday.
According to an incident report, the victim said he was on Front Street driving toward Powell Mill Road about 12:20 a.m. when he approached a bridge. The victim said three men came out of the bushes with their arms “locked,” forming a human chain in front of the bridge, the report states.
The victim said he drove through the men and then heard about six gunshots, four of which hit his van on the driver's side, the report states. The man said he didn't stop driving until he got to his home on Powell Mill Road.
The victim's 8-year-old grandson was in the van at the time of the incident, the report stated. Deputies found two .22-caliber shell casings on the bridge on Front Street, according to the report.
The three men who approached the victim's van all wore black jackets with hoods and had their faces covered, the report states. Before the shooting call, a deputy had stopped to speak with three men dressed similarly, but none had identification or weapons on them, according to the report.
No arrests have been made.
