SUMMERVILLE — The Dorchester County coroner has released the name of a man who died after he was shot Wednesday night in the Gahagan community, and police arrested a suspect who also was wounded by gunfire.
Kyle Robert Bammann, 24, was shot shortly before 5 p.m. outside his home on Black Oak Boulevard. He later was pronounced dead at Medical University Hospital. Coroner Chris Nisbet said he died from what appeared to be multiple gunshot wounds.
Summerville police on Thursday charged Byron Christopher Kinsey, 23, with murder, police Capt. Jon Rogers said. He said Kinsey was detained when he reported to the S.C. Probation and Parole Department, and they learned that Kinsey had been shot. He was taken to a local hospital for medical care.
It was not clear whether Kinsey's gunshot wound is related to Bammann's death. He remained at the hospital later in the day, and his bond will be set when doctors release him.
Citing the ongoing investigation, authorities released no other information about the case.
Kinsey is on probation following a strong-arm robbery conviction in Dorchester County, according to the S.C. Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services' Web site. The county's Web site shows he also had been convicted of carjacking and that Bammann in 2006 was convicted on drug charges.
Bammann's funeral arrangements are being handled by James A. Dyal Funeral Home of Summerville. His family, through a funeral home official, declined to comment.
