SUMTER COUNTY, SC (WIS) - Authorities in Sumter County have identified the victims of Monday evening's fatal shooting in an apartment complex near Wedgefield.

Sheriff Anthony Dennis said the incident occurred around 8:30 p.m. Monday at the South Forge Apartments off Highway 261. Dennis said three men were sitting in a parked car at the complex when an unknown person in another vehicle shot at them and drove off.

Raphael Gunter, 17, and Kyron Gilmore, 29, were taken to the hospital, according to Dennis, but Gilmore was pronounced dead on arrival. Gilmore was treated for a gunshot wound to the upper arm and released.

The driver, 18-year-old Kadeem Robinson, was uninjured.
