Deputies: argument over necklace leads to shots fired
RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) - Deputies say a dispute over a necklace has landed a woman in jail overnight.
Sergeant Curtis Wilson with the Richland County Sheriff's Department says they responded to a shots fired call at a home on Stamhope Court around 1:00 Monday morning. That is located in northern Richland County near Longtown Road and I-77.
The man at the home says his ex-girlfriend, later identified as 21-year-old Tanisha Knight, came to the home to get a necklace, according to Wilson. After Knight was told the necklace was not at the home a man stepped out of the car to start a fight, Wilson says. The homeowner then went back into the house and brought out a family member.
Sergeant Wilson says the man and Knight got back in the car and began firing shots as they drove away. Several rounds hit the house. There are no reports of injuries.
Deputies later arrested Knight at her home and she is being charged with three counts of attempted murder. Knight is being held at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
Deputies are still looking for two other suspects who were involved in the shooting. If you have any information about this incident you are asked to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
