Deputies: Woman shot at ATM in Spartanburg during robbery

Posted: Updated:
SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Deputies said two robbers fired shots at a car trying to flee from them, but a woman was shot in the neck Friday night.

Spartanburg County deputies said they were called to the Best Buy on East Blackstock Road just before 11 p.m. for a shooting and arrived to find the victims in their car.

Deputies said the shooting happened at the Bank of America ATM on West Blackstock Road after two men armed with guns approached the victims' car. Deputies said the men had their faces covered.

The male driver told FOX Carolina he tried to get away.

"I don't even remember what I thought, just put the car in drive and get out of there," Jeffery McDaniel said.

McDaniel says he put his car in drive and accelerated, and headed to the Best Buy to wait for police as a 911 dispatcher had instructed him to do. Deputies said the victims heard gunshots fired at the car and a female passenger was hit on the right side of her neck.

Deputies said the woman was taken to Spartanburg Regional Medical Center. McDaniel says she was released from their care Saturday and is expected to recover.

The two gunmen have not been identified and no detailed description was released.

McDaniel says he has some advice for others in light of what happened.

"Don't go to dark ATM's at night," McDaniel said. "That ATM is not a very good one, there's no lights around, be smarter than I was."

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
