A father and his stepdaughter were shot, and a man who tried to intervene was wounded, after a minor automobile crash in South Carolina.
Nick Wall, 45, and his 21-year-old stepdaughter, Laura Anderson, both from Georgetown, died in separate hospitals after being shot by a man they crashed into in a random minor automobile accident on Monday afternoon.
A third man who witnessed the crash and ensuing altercation was shot, but survived the incident, remaining in critical condition, as he came to check on the passengers and investigate the situation.
Ty Sheem Ha Sheem Walters III reportedly fled into a nearby forest after the shooting, but was arrested shortly after attempting to escape as bloodhound units assisted in tracking him down.
Police say Walters is responsible for the shooting, and Walters is current facing double murder charges as well as an attempted murder charge. His bond hearing is scheduled for September.
ABC4 reported that Laura was on the path to follow her mother’s footsteps in becoming a teacher, according to her family. She had also moved into her first home within a week of the fatal shooting.
