A 15-year-old is now in police custody after firing a rifle at his adoptive mother’s vehicle, ABC 15 News reported.

On Sunday, March 2nd, a South Carolina woman was returning home from church when a bullet from a rifle hit her driver’s side window. She then fled the scene and returned to Rose Hill Baptist Church, where she was met by law enforcement and medical emergency personnel. The victim, who had been hit by the flying glass, was taken to a nearby hospital and treated for her non-life threatening injuries. She is expected to fully recover quickly.

When deputies from the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office made their way to the victim’s home, they discovered three firearms laid out in the front yard, along with bullets that had been fired into the unoccupied house before the woman had arrived. The teenaged suspect was arrested without incident.

No information has been provided about how long the teen has been living with the victim or what led to the shooting, but officials say that the incident is still under investigation.
