A Friday night shooting at a Colleton County auto body shop left one man dead and another seriously injured, officials said Saturday.
Several people and multiple weapons were involved, said Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Amye Stivender.
No shooting-related arrests have been made, but Edward and Jason Russell have been arrested and charged with obstructing justice in Sheriff R.A. Strickland's investigation, she said.
Sheriff's deputies responded to the scene in the 200 block of Godwin Street where they found a man already dead from his wounds, Stivender said.
Another man who was still alive had gunshot wounds to the face. He was transferred by helicopter from Colleton Regional Medical Center to the Trauma Unit of the Medical University of South Carolina, Stivender said.
Colleton County Coroner Richard Harvey identified the deceased as Daquawn Lawton, 22, of Sharon Drive. Harvey said Lawton died of multiple gunshot wounds to the upper torso. An autopsy was underway in Charleston Saturday afternoon, The Press and Standard of Walterboro reported.
The coroner's office has not yet responded to a request from The Post and Courier to confirm the identity of the deceased as reported by The Press and Standard.
