Teen accused of shooting at men, house

LEXINGTON, S.C. – A 13-year-old boy is charged with two counts of attempted murder and shooting into a dwelling after deputies said he shot at two men and toward a house.

“Based on the information deputies gathered at the scene Friday, the young man fired a .22 rifle in the direction of his neighbor, who was outside his home on Bush Berry Road in Pelion,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Witnesses told deputies a man who pulled into the neighbor’s driveway was also shot at.”

The teen, who is not being identified because he’s under the age of 17, ran away and locked himself in a nearby home when deputies arrived on scene, according to Koon. After several minutes of negotiation, the teen came out and began talking with deputies.

“In light of the information the teen shared with us, he was placed under arrest and transported to the South Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice,” Koon said. “He will appear in Lexington County Family Court at a later date.”
