DARLINGTON, SC (WBTW) – Two people have been charged in a shooting death in Darlington County.

Keith Kevin Larry and Deonte Hamilton went to the 1300 block of Larrys Drive in August and were involved in a “physical altercation,” according to Lt. Robert Kilgo, with the Darlington County Sheriff’s Office. During that altercation, a “firearm was discharged,” hitting the victim, who died.

According to a press release from the Darlington County Sheriff’s Office both men are charged with voluntary manslaughter. Both have been denied bond by a Darlington County Magistrate and remain in custody at the W. Glenn Campbell Detention Center.
