A college student and her stepfather died after a gunman shot them both following a minor fender bender.
Ty Sheem Ha Sheem Walters III, 23, allegedly shot and killed Charles Nicholas Wall, 45, and Laura Ashley Anderson, 21, on Monday in Georgetown, S.C., right outside of Anderson’s newly-purchased home, according to the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office. Walters also allegedly shot and injured another man as well, Paul McConnell, law enforcement said, according to WPDE.
Anderson was standing outside of her house around 5 p.m. waiting on Wall to bring her a spare set of house keys. Anderson was selling a pair of bunk beds and had accidentally locked herself out of her house when she was meeting with the buyer.
Walters allegedly rear-ended Wall as he was turning into his stepdaughter’s driveway. Wall then allegedly got out of his car and shot both Anderson and Wall. The victims were rushed to nearby hospitals where they later died. McConnell was also struck by a bullet on his arm.
Deputies arrested Walters about an hour and a half after the shooting after Walters attempted to run from authorities. Walters has been charged with two counts of murder and one count of attempted murder, according to the Georgetown Times.
“I don’t understand how a simple fender bender they called it could turn into double murder and an attempted to murder,” Lynn Lambert, a friend of the Wall family, told WPDE. “Why? I honestly didn’t think it was real. Who does this?”
