Three shots fired at Sen. Jordan's home

By The Associated Press

GREENWOOD — Greenwood police say three shots were fired into the home of state Sen. David Jordan but they don’t know if it was some random incident or directed at Jordan.

Jordan, a Democrat, is a member of the Greenwood City Council and has served in the state Senate since 1993.

Police Chief Henry Purcell says one bullet pierced the back of Jordan’s wife’s car. Another went through a front window of the home and was found in a wall. A third projectile ricocheted off the brick exterior.

Jordan tells The Associated Press that he and his wife were asleep in a back bedroom and were not hurt. He says a neighbor heard the shots and called police.

Purcell says police are reviewing videotapes from cameras Jordan had installed outside his home.
