New shooting in South Boston under investigation / October 01, 2020

South Boston Police are continuing to look for suspects in a rash of shootings in town, the latest occurring early Sunday morning at Country Green Apartments.

The Halifax County E911 Center received a call shortly after 3:30 a.m. from a resident who discovered what appeared to be damage to their apartment kitchen window. SBPD Officer S. Kenney responded and found the damage was consistent with gunfire. The resident did not hear gunshots, according to police.

SBPD officers also found a 2003 Lincoln that appeared to be hit by bullets. Later that morning, another person in the area reported damage to their 2005 Chevrolet that was also consistent with having come from gunfire.

Officers collected numerous pieces of evidence from the scene, including cartridge cases that will be sent to the Department of Forensic in Richmond for lab analysis. There are currently no suspects in this crime.

The Sunday shootings come on the heels of separate shooting incidents over the past week in town. In two of the shootings, victims suffered gunshot wounds to the leg, not life-threatening in either case.

Anyone having any information regarding the gunfire incident at Country Green Apartments, or other shootings, is asked to call the South Boston Police Department at 434-575-7273.
