GREER, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - The Greer Police Department announced that two suspects were recently charged following a shooting that injured one person on January 21, 2023.

Officers said they responded to Sea Grit Court at around 3 a.m. and found the victim, who’d been shot at least once.

According to officers, the victim had reportedly received a notification from his security cameras telling him that someone was in his driveway trying to break into his vehicle. When he went outside and called out to the person, they allegedly fired a weapon and hit him. Officers added that the suspect was then picked up by someone driving a blue Hyundai Elantra or Sonata.

Officers reported that the victim was taken to the hospital for treatment. However, his current condition is unknown.

On January 31, officers announced that 19-year-old Jeffrey Dodd of Greer was charged with attempted murder, possession of a weapon during violent crime, and criminal conspiracy for the shooting.

Police said Jeffrey Dodd appeared in court the same day but was denied bond.

On February 1, officers said they took 18-year-old Jerry Dodd into custody and charged him with accessory after the fact to felony, criminal conspiracy, and three counts of breaking into a motor vehicle.

According to Jerry Dodd’s warrants, he allegedly helped Jeffrey Dodd escape the scene following the shooting and later tried to fix the getaway car they were driving.

Officers stated that they are still investigating this incident. Anyone with information regarding the situation is asked to call the police department at (864) 848-2151.
