Officers with the Aiken Department of Public Safety arrested a suspect Wednesday afternoon following a pursuit with a vehicle involved in a drive-by shooting.

Officers responded to the Hahn Village area in Aiken on Wednesday around 4 p.m. after receiving reports of shots fired, said Lt. Jake Mahoney, with Aiken Public Safety.

After a description of the vehicle was released, officers located the vehicle and entered into a pursuit, Mahoney said.

Aiken County Sheriff’s Office deputies assisted Public Safety and laid out tire deflation devices, also known as spike strips, which finally got the suspect to come to a halt on U.S. Highway 1 near Sudlow Lake Road, he said.

The suspect is in custody, but has not been identified.

No injuries have been reported as of yet from the shooting.
