Walterboro -- Shots were fired here Wednesday afternoon, but no one was injured, authorities said.

Deputies were called to the intersection of Francis and Savage streets shortly before noon for reports of gunshots fired in the area, the Colleton County Sheriff's Office said.

One person was arrested, but his or her identity was withheld. The person was charged with unlawful possession of a handgun.

"It is unknown at this time if this incident is related to the recent shootings in Walterboro," a press release said.

Shootings last week left three people dead and eight more wounded. The violence prompted authorities to flood the area with police and consider imposing a curfew.
