A Georgetown County woman has been arrested after a gunfight erupted when a man’s two girlfriends confronted each other, according to police reports.
The victim, who was 19, was shot six times and airlifted to Grand Strand Medical Center, according to Georgetown County Sheriff’s Public Information Officer Jason Lesley.
Dominique Middleton, 25, was arrested April 11 and charged with attempted murder, and Andrews resident Katneshia Boyd, 27, was charged with pointing and presenting a firearm and obstructing justice, a Georgetown County police report states.
Deputies say Middleton told his girlfriend on April 10 to come to his sister’s house. The report states Middleton’s girlfriend, a 21-year-old Columbia woman, was in town with her sister and the gunshot victim. When the three arrived, they were confronted by another woman who also claimed to be Middleton’s girlfriend, according to the report.
While one girlfriend “wanted to fight,” the other claimed she “just wanted to make things right” with Middleton. But an argument started and soon shots were fired, police said.
Deputies report that there were two shooters involved: Middleton and another unidentified man who was wearing “a white T-shirt.” Boyd allegedly had a firearm as well, and pointed it at the victims, according to Lesley.
Boyd was released on bond Wednesday, and the case is still under investigation, according to Lesley.
