Shooting Highlights Importance Of Calling 911

At first instinct if you see someone injured, some people think that they should drive that person to get help. But officials say the best thing to do is call 911.

Over the weekend, friends tried to drive a woman to the hospital who had been shot in Greenville. She died. Greenville Fire & Rescue said it would have been better to call them.

Chief Dough Branch of the Greenville Fire Department said he wants to remind people of the importance of calling 911. "It's very important to have a professional on that scene administering care as quickly as possible."

Four people have been charged for the murder of 22 year-old Kendra Blount.
