On November 17, 2020 at approximately 8:00 p.m. officers of the Abbeville Police Department responded to the Walmart parking lot in reference to shots being fired in the area. The responding officers located a witness who advised them that they observed two subjects fighting in the parking lot, and a third subject exited the vehicle and fired two rounds from a handgun toward the ground near one of the subjects after they stopped fighting.
