On Wednesday July 12 at approximately 8:30 p.m., Colleton County Dispatch received calls in reference to shots fired near Hickory and Enterprise Streets in Walterboro. The caller stated that a male had been hit and was lying in the road.

The first deputy arrived on scene at 8:35 p.m. and confirmed that there was a male victim, who had apparent signs of a gunshot wound to the facial area.

The suspect, according to the witnesses, is Michael Hawkins, 37. The Colleton County Sheriff’s Office has obtained warrants on Hawkins for attempted murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.

Hawkins left the scene driving a green Acura with S.C. tag NBQ874 and may be in possession of several firearms, so should be considered armed and dangerous, said Tyger Benton of the Colleton County Sheriff’s Office.

Anyone with any information on this shooting or the location of the suspect is asked to call the Colleton County Sheriff’s Office at 843-549-2211 or Crime Stoppers at 843-554-1111. Callers can remain anonymous.

    Like usual, CCSO asking for assistance because they have no leads. Maybe if they actually patrolled the high crime areas, instead of looking to write tickets, they would actually prevent some of the crime around here. But NOOOOO, they’d rather sit in their cruiser and stay cool. You signed up to serve and protect, not ticket and sham. Get off your arses and get to work already. I haven’t seen a lazier bunch of police since Cottageville PD was run by Biscuit. Which by the way is the reason that the otherwise beautiful town of C’ville has such a high crime rate versus population. For god’s sake the Enterprise Bank in C’ville used to get knocked off almost weekly back in the 90’s, you’d think they’d just wait outside until it happened again. But NOOOOO, in typical Colleton County fashion they were too busy stopping “speeders”, which by the way Biscuit would make the “perp” bring him their documents because he wouldn’t get out of his car, so he’d just shout orders via the PA on his patrol car, which also by the way was a SUV to haul his fat **** around. Sheesh, all you CC Deputies have followed suit it seems. Stop some crime and fix our county you lazy bums!
