A late-night shooting in Walterboro leaves three dead and at least five more people injured. Around 10 p.m. on Monday a shooting devastated a family in Walterboro. According to some family members, the victims were playing cards in their front yard when a car pulled up and opened fire. Ella Adams of Walterboro told the Post and Courier “they killed the whole family.”
Colleton County Coroner Richard Harvey says the victims were from Walterboro and were related, although it was unclear of the relationships. Charles “Bubba” Kitrell, 45, died on scene, Shaniyah Burden, a 20-month-old girl, was later pronounced dead at the Colleton Medical Center, and Christopher Powell, 21, died at MUSC after being transported.
The Walterboro Police Department and SLED are investigating and were initially looking for a black BMW with one headlight out.
