DARLINGTON CO, SC (WBTW) – A Hartsville man has been charged with murder after a shooting during a house party in Darlington County.
Jason McCoy is accused of shooting two people after a fight broke out at the party on Hartsville Highway in July. McCoy was arrested on Dec. 18 and booked into the W. Glenn Campbell Detention Center.
A Darlington High School graduate, Shaquan Brown, 24, died as a result of the shooting. Brown worked at a nursing home in Darlington County for many years and was called “Quan” by family, who say he was a fun and loving person, according to his obituary.
Darlington County sheriff’s deputies said a woman was having a house party when a fight broke out in the backyard. The woman told deputies she asked everyone to leave at that time. That’s when a large group of people went into the front yard and the woman heard gunshots, deputies said.
Brown was found near a car with several gunshot wounds to the head and neck. A second person was shot in the lower abdomen and was taken to the hospital for treatment.
McCoy remains in the W. Glenn Campbell Detention Center without bond.
