Police said they are investigating another shooting at a Greenwood apartment complex.

Greenwood police said they've recently investigated two shootings at the Oakhill Apartments near Cokesbury Street.

The first was in September when investigators said Marquese Jackson and Dantavius Christian, 23, were involved in a fight at an apartment, when Jackson went to get a gun, then shot Christian in the head.

The latest happened Wednesday morning. Tashondia Wrapp said she was leaving her friend's house when she saw a suspicious car behind a fence. She said she saw someone get out and fire three shots before the car drove away.

Greenwood police said their officers were a couple blocks away and heard the shots. They said they responded and chased that car a few blocks before arresting the driver Matthew Ligon for failure to stop for a blue light and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.

Police said two passengers ran but only one, Dwayne Sanders, was caught. Police said he was charged with failure to stop on lawful command, possession of marijuana and possession of a stolen pistol.

No one was charged for firing a gun because investigators said no shell casings or injuries were found. Even though Wrapp said her friend's hand was grazed by a bullet, she couldn't pick out a suspect from a lineup.

"So what do I supposed to do? I'm scared, I can't sleep at night, I'm scared to come over (to these apartments). I don't know who's about to come out the bushes next waiting for somebody to come out from over here," Wrapp said.

Greenwood investigators said they don't think the two shootings at the complex are related. They also remind everyone to call 911 if they see anything suspicious.
