Shots fired into vacant house on Catawba Indian Reservation

The HeraldFebruary 20, 2014 

— The shots fired into at a vacant home in the Catawba Indian Reservation may be linked to drug activity, according to a York County Sheriff's Office report.

Deputies responded to the midday shooting on Monday. A woman said someone in a red Honda fired "several rounds from what looked like a handmade gun" from inside the vehicle, according to the report.

No one was injured in the drive-by.

Deputies found a bullet hole in the corner post of a vacant home on World Changers Lane. They also discovered four brass shell casings from a 9mm gun in the road.

The woman, along with her neighbor, were hesitant to provide additional details about a potential shooter. The woman said "drug dealing" is taking place on Singing Bird Lane, which is where the vehicle came from. The neighbor, an 83-year-old man, said earlier in the day someone pulled up to his house and yelled that "he would get him" before 5 p.m. that day.

The suspect is still unknown, and investigators will process the shell casings for fingerprints.
