Margie Trull, 62, vividly remembers the day her ex-husband shot her and her son on Mother's Day in Spartanburg County. It was 1994, and he'd just gotten out of prison for domestic violence when he came to her house with a .38-caliber pistol.
Trull and her son, David Trull, survived, and her husband went to prison for 10 years.
Just after 7 p.m. Thursday, she was with her son when they heard a gunshot outside their Kiley Court home in Rock Hill. They both dropped to the floor.
"My son pushed me to the ground and said, 'Momma, that's a gun. Don't get up! Stay in the floor!'" she said.
David Trull is attending a wedding on Saturday, and his mother was helping him try on a necktie when the shot rang out. Margie Trull crawled on the floor into her bedroom to grab the phone and call 911. The dispatcher stayed on the phone with her until police officers arrived.
"If I had walked in there (to the bedroom) when I was going to, instead of helping him with his tie, the bullet would've hit me," she said.
The bullet ripped through her bedroom wall, across the room, and slammed into the other wall. Rock Hill police cut out a piece of the wall digging for the slug but couldn't find it.
Trull knew the shooter was probably not her former husband, but she was afraid that it could be.
He's been out of prison for years, but she has never seen him. She still worries he may come back to hurt them again.
"I was just shaking all over, scared to death," she said. "If I see a gun, I get real shook up. I don't like people to even talk about guns."
Rock Hill police are investigating the incident, but they don't think the house was targeted deliberately. It looks more like a random stray bullet because the house is not even visible from the nearest road.
For Margie Trull, that's little comfort, because they've been victims of horrible violence before.
"Just wondering who did it, and will someone come back and do it again?" she said.
