On Saturday, at 3:30 a.m. a call came into the Halifax E 911 Center about shots being fired in the 200 block of Glendale Drive in South Boston. Officers from the South Boston Police Department as well as deputies from the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office responded and found that a residence there, as well as two vehicles in the yard, appeared to have been struck by gunfire.
