Coroner: 3 killed, 6 hurt in SC shooting


WALTERBORO, S.C. – A South Carolina coroner says three people including a young child are dead and six were injured in a drive-by shooting in a small town.

The shooting occurred about 10 p.m. Monday at a house in Walterboro, about 40 miles west of Charleston. Colleton County Coroner Richard Harvey says the victims were from Walterboro and were related, though he did not know the relationships.

Harvey says 45-year-old Charles Kittrell died at scene. Twenty-month-old Shaniyah Burden and 21-year-old Christopher Powell died at two hospitals.

A police dispatcher told The Associated Press that investigators are at the scene and not available to comment. She was not aware of any arrests.

Calls to a state police spokeswoman were not immediately returned early Tuesday.
