Sumter County deputies are searching for two suspects after three of four family members, including a 7-year-old, were shot during what officials say was a home invasion at a Cherryvale mobile home park Friday night.

The adult female was in stable condition as of Saturday. The status of the adult male and the girl were not known on Saturday but had been said to be critical and serious, respectively, but stable after the shooting Friday, according to Adrienne Sarvis, public information officer for the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office, who confirmed the information with Sumter County Sheriff Anthony Dennis.

The three victims and a boy – Sarvis said he is younger than 7 – were shot about 8 p.m. in their home at the American Mobile Home Plaza, which is on Broad Street behind Tony’s Guns and Triple D Garage near Shaw Air Force Base.

Sarvis said she could not comment on information about the two suspects, whether they have been identified or detained.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call the sheriff’s office at (803) 436-2000 or call CrimeStoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC (274-6372). You can also submit an anonymous tip at
