A man reportedly fired shots into an apartment where a woman and her two children live at the Sandalwood Terrace apartment complex on the north end of Hilton Head Island late Sunday.

A 22-year-old woman told Beaufort County Sheriff's deputies that she was sitting in her living room with her 4-month-old son when she heard a noise outside just before midnight.

She saw the silhouette of a man and quickly shut the door. At that moment, multiple shots were fired into the apartment from outside.

The woman took cover with her baby and waited until the gunfire ceased. She then checked on her 5-year-old son, who had been sleeping upstairs.

No one was injured. About $1,500 in structural damage was reported.

No description of the suspect was available, and a motive has not been determined.
