The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office is investigating shots fired Sunday night at a North end apartment complex.

Deputies responded just before midnight to reports of shots fired at Sandalwood Terrace at 8 Southwood Park Dr.

A 22-year-old woman told deputies she had been sitting on the sofa in her living room with her 4-month-old son, when she heard a noise outside. She then saw a man's silhouette outside, quickly shut the front door.

That's when several gunshots were fired into the apartment from outside, according to the BCSO.

The woman took cover with her child until the gunfire stopped then checked on her other, a 5-year old boy, who had been sleeping upstairs.
