Teen seriously wounded in drive-by shooting

WINNSBORO – A Winnsboro teen has been shot during the town’s latest drive-by shooting according to town officials. The shooting occurred around 7 p.m., on College Street near Spring St in Zion Hill. 

A vehicle was reportedly driving past two teens walking along the street when a person or persons in the vehicle opened fire, hitting one of the teens in the upper body. The victim was transported to an area hospital.

It’s the tenth drive-by shooting in Winnsboro since April, and the sixth shooting victim.

Town Manager Jason Taylor told The Voice there is no word yet on the condition of the victim, but Taylor said he’s been on the phone most of the night with law enforcement and other government officials about the shooting.
