A 31-year-old Yemassee man whose car was shot at Thursday told police the incident occurred when he had just finished asking two pedestrians why they wouldn’t get out of the street, according to a Yemassee Police Department report made available on Monday.
One of the two suspects in the late morning shooting near Fennel Elementary School in Yemassee turned herself in to police Saturday afternoon, according to police department spokesman Matthew Garnes.
The victim reported he was driving south on Church Street near Yemassee Highway when he saw a man and a woman holding hands and walking in the roadway, according to the report. He went around the pedestrians, then turned his Honda Civic back around because he said he heard the man say something to him, the report said.
He told police when he asked them why they hadn’t gotten out of the way of his car, the male pedestrian pulled out a handgun and fired two shots into the front driver’s side door, according to the report. The woman stood by on her cell phone.
Iyhonna Williams, 19, of Yemassee, faces a charge of attempted murder, according to Garnes. She was transported to the Hampton County Detention Center and is awaiting a bond hearing.
The identity of the male suspect has not yet been released, and he has not yet been charged, according to police. Anyone with any information can call the Yemassee Police Department at 843-589-6315.
