Kershaw man, 34, gets life without parole in teen's shooting death

Shag Qu-Tee Marshall pleaded guilty to murder, attempted murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of violent crime.

A 34-year-old Kershaw man will serve life in prison without the possibility of parole for killing a 15-year-old boy in Colleton County in July.

Shag Qu-Tee Marshall pleaded guilty Thursday to murder, attempted murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of violent crime. He shot to death 15-year-old Calvin Fishburne Jr. and wounded Fishburne's 17-year-old brother, Quinton Simmons, at their Keegan Road home on July 19.

Authorities say Marshall was romantically involved with the same woman as the teens' older brother and went to Colleton County to confront him. Marshall stole a gun from his uncle, took a bus from Camden to Walterboro and then walked for miles to confront his rival, according to prosecutors.

Marshall knocked on the door at the Keegan Road home. The brothers answered the door and offered him water because they assumed he was their brother's friend. Marshall took out a gun and shot Fishburne in the head then continued shooting, grazing the 17-year-old boy.

Colleton County sheriff's deputies later found Marshall hiding in a nearby field.
