Man charged with attempted murder

WINNSBORO – A Fort Lawn man has been charged with attempted murder after allegedly firing several shots into a Winnsboro residence and vehicle.


Syrasheon Direll Rice, 25, was arrested on Jan. 4, more than a month after shooting into a home occupied by a woman and a friend.

The woman called sheriff’s deputies on Dec. 15, 2018 to report that she and her friend were in the house when a grey car pulled up in the front yard and began shooting into the direction of the residence. The bullets also hit a vehicle parked at the residence.

After finding a bullet hole in the living room window, deputies reported retrieving six shell casings from the roadway directly in front of the residence.

According to the report, the woman texted deputies that she feared the next time would be worse and that she would die. She also told deputies, according to the report, that the gun used in the shooting had been stolen from her home earlier.

Rice is being held without bond in the Fairfield County Detention Center for the attempted murder charge.
