Four shootings have occurred over three days in Beaufort County, and amazingly, the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office said none of them appear to be related.

Investigators have issued an attempted murder in one of them.

They're hoping the community will come forward and help them solve all of these crimes.

"It's concerning because, I mean kids are all over the place," said Erica Gibbs, who lives off of Coinbow Loop.

She said she was at home Friday night when she heard shots fired near a neighbor's home.

"Didn't know where it was coming from, but I mean, I'd just rather, let's make the community better for kids, for sake of the kids," said Gibbs.

Beaufort County Sheriff's investigators believe Omar Habersham fired those shots, injuring a 32-year-old man.

They've issued a warrant for attempted murder and possession of a firearm.

"We do have investigators out looking for Omar Habersham. The victim has been treated and released," said Robin McIntosh, Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.

Officers also responded to a shooting off Detour Road that same night where a 26 year old was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

On Saturday morning, there was another shooting at a pool hall off of Parris Island Gateway that injured a 19-year-old victim.

"He was shot in a vehicle that was leaving the area," said McIntosh.

Another 19 year old was injured Sunday night in a shooting off St. Helena near Eddings Point. Deputies said the victim was shot in the face.

McIntosh added, "the person of interest is a 16-year-old juvenile."

Both 19-year-old victims from this weekend remain in the hospital.

Investigators said there doesn't seem to be a connection between any of these cases.

"It's astounding. Obviously that's very unusual for anywhere, but especially our area," said McIntosh.

If you have information about any of these four shootings, please contact the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.
