BCSO investigates attempted murder, assault in Dale

Posted: Updated:

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office is investigating an attempted murder and assault Wednesday evening. 

Deputies responded to the 900 block of Kinloch Road in Dale, which is in northern Beaufort County, at 6:10 p.m. on a report of shots fired. When they arrived they found two subjects that had been involved in an altercation. 

Officials say suspect Torrion Cooper tried to hit the victim, Nakia Brown, with a metal tool, but Brown defended himself by using a folding pocket knife. 

Cooper received a non-life-threatening slash to his upper back area. Brown then got in his vehicle and was attempting to leave when an unknown subject fired multiple rounds at his vehicle from the road. 

Several of those bullets struck a store at the incident location. There were two employees in the store at the time but luckily no one was injured. 

The incident remains under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact South Carolina Crime Stoppers at 1.888.274.6372.
