GRANITEVILLE, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT) - The Aiken County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed a shooting incident happened Sunday on Midnight Pass, just off Exit 11 on eastbound Interstate 20.

News 12 reached out to the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office just after 4 p.m., after hearing police scanner dispatch calls about a shooting incident on Midnight Pass.


Capt. Eric Abdullah with the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that a shooting incident occurred, but no injuries were reported.

It was one of the latest in an outbreak of shootings across the CSRA in the past week:

The shootings are all part of an outbreak of violence that’s claimed more than 90 lives in a little over a year across the CSRA.

The outbreak has affected communities large and small on both sides of the Savannah River, although as the largest community, Augusta has been hit hard.

Many of the victims and suspects have been young men, and authorities have blamed much of the problem on gangs.
