WALTERBORO, S.C. (WCBD) – A 28-year-old man has died after being shot at a home in Walterboro.
Authorities say it happened late Sunday night off White Hall Road.
Deputies with the Colleton County Sheriff’s Office initially responded to a fight that happened at the home. Once there, they determined a man suffering from at least one gunshot wound had been taken to the hospital in their own car.
Two Colleton County Fire-Rescue units were dispatched to the home, and while en route the crews were flagged down outside Hendersonville Elementary School where they located the gunshot victim inside his vehicle.
Fire-Rescue crews say the man was unconscious and critically injured with “diminished respirations.”
He was initially treated at the scene before being taken to Colleton Medical Center. However, the man went into cardiac arrest while on the way and did not survive.
“Resuscitative efforts, including advanced airway procedures and bleeding control were continued during transport to the hospital,” fire-rescue crews said.
Investigators located the man who they believe was responsible for the deadly shooting, 28-year-old Tevin Jerome Manigo, at another residence.
He was taken into custody without incident and is being housed at the Colleton County Detention Center.
