The Greenwood Police Department is investigating a Tuesday morning shooting that appeared to have been sparked by a roadside argument.
According to a Greenwood police report, the shooting occurred near the intersection of Walker Avenue and Pearl Street at 9:20 a.m. Tuesday. Several people in the area at the time reported hearing multiple shots fired. One witness, according to the report, indicated as many as seven shots were fired during the incident.
Witnesses told officers two vehicles were sitting in the middle of the road on Pearl Street, and the people inside appeared to be arguing. The two vehicles pulled side by side, and the respective passengers continued to have a verbal altercation, the report indicated. Both vehicles then drove away and turned onto Walker Avenue, with one vehicle traveling west and the other heading eastbound.
At some point, the westbound suspect vehicle stopped and someone reached out the driver's side window brandishing a handgun and fired shots at the victim, witnesses said. Both vehicles then sped off from the scene.
Police located seven .380-caliber brass shell casings in the 200 block of Walker near the road's intersection with Pearl Street.
