The Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office identified the suspect as Ty Sheem Ha Sheem Walters III, 23, from Moncks Corner.
The shooting happened around 5 p.m. on Aug. 24 when the stepfather went to deliver keys to Anderson after she accidentally locked herself out of her newly purchased home. She had just moved in and was selling an old set of bunk beds to someone online, who was coming over to pick up the items.
Wall’s car was allegedly rear-ended as he turned into the driveway of Anderson’s home. Walters reportedly got out of his vehicle and shot Wall, Anderson, and McConnell.
“It actually happened in her yard, waiting for the keys to get to her,” Lynn Lambert, a close friend of the family, told WPDE-TV.
According to WB-TV, when law enforcement arrived at the scene, one of the victims had already been taken to the hospital, and a second was being given CPR by an emergency medical technician. McConnell was walking around with a gunshot wound to his left wrist. Wall was shot at least twice in the head and torso, Fox News reported. Anderson was shot at least once in the head.
Walters allegedly fled the scene by foot and ran into the woods. Police immediately established a perimeter and apprehended Walters around 6:30 p.m., according to the Georgetown Times’ Post and Courier.
Walters was charged with two counts of murder, one count of attempted murder and the illegal possession of a firearm. He was denied bail by the judge.
