On October 25, 2018, at around 5:40pm, Deputies from the Colleton County Sheriff’s Office responded to Shuman’s Mobile Home Park on Jefferies Highway for a possible shooting.
Once on scene, Deputies found a juvenile white male who appeared to have sustained a gunshot wound. Family members were performing CPR on him at the time. Paramedics arrived on scene and he was determined to be deceased.
Investigators spent several hours processing the scene and interviewing potential witnesses. Although foul play is not suspected, the incident is still under investigation and the facts behind the shooting are not clear.
Sheriff R. A. Strickland says “Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of this young man. Please continue to pray for everyone involved.”
