GLOVERVILLE, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT) - Aiken County deputies confirm at least 50 gunshots were fired early Friday morning in the area of Lawana Drive in Gloverville.

Deputies on scene tell us two houses were struck by the gunfire.

Another shooting happened in the same house exactly a week ago.

One person was shot last Friday and taken to a hospital.

The Aiken County Sheriff’s Office confirmed 21-year-old Tyrese Washington was shot in his home last Friday.

Officials say Washington is stable in the hospital but is not cooperating with the investigation.

A few hours after this week’s shooting, crews rushed to the site of a reported structure fire in the same neighborhood.

The fire was reported around 8 a.m. in the 100 block of Carline Road, no more than two or three blocks west of where the gunfire was reported.
