NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. (WJBF) – An Irish Traveler church in North Augusta had its service interrupted Sunday morning by a man who entered the church screaming.
It happened around 10:30 a.m. at Saint Edward Catholic Church on Edgefield Road.
Deputies responded to a call about a suspicious person.
Witnesses tell NewsChannel 6 that the man started shouting obscene things at the people in the church.
Those same witnesses say people thought the man had a gun so many of them ran out of the church in fear.
No arrest was made.
We have reached out to the Edgefield County Sheriff’s Office for more information.
