According to a release from Pickens County Sheriff’s Office chief deputy Creed Hashe, police received a call about shots fired on Railroad Street in Liberty at around 4:45 p.m. on Sept. 2.

Upon arrival, deputies found six recently fired shell casings in the road and a damaged vehicle belonging to a man who lives at 160 Railroad St.

Deputies interviewed several witnesses, including the 52-year-old resident of the home, who told officers a Ford F-150 truck had stopped in front of the home and the driver had fired several rounds from a rifle into the tires of the man’s vehicle.

The man told police the incident stemmed from an ongoing dispute between several people.

The driver of the truck, identified as Nathan Bryan Church, 33, was found a short time later and was arrested for malicious injury to personal property and pointing and presenting a firearm.

Police seized a .22-caliber rifle as evidence.

Church was released Thursday on a combined $6,000 surety bond.
