ORANGEBURG COUNTY, SC Orangeburg County Sheriffs deputies have arrested a man in connection with a fatal shooting that happened Monday morning.
Police say Marquis Diondre Stevenson, 20, has been charged with murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.
Officers were flagged down by a woman around 11:30 a.m. Monday because she heard gunshots while traveling along Stilton Road, Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said.
Officers discovered a shattered back window of a vehicle parked near a house and a man laying in the front yard at a Stilton Road address, Ravenell said.
Our investigation indicates 20-year-old Marquis Diondre Stevenson accidentally shot his friend, the 20-year-old victim, while shooting at two other individuals during an altercation about stolen drugs, Ravenell said.
Sons of Obama, SC Chapter, ping.

Poor guy probably has to answer the door himself.
Does anyone know how long he would expect to be in prison? These thugs never seem to care, like it won’t be long.
I’m surprised they were up that early in the day!
I bet he is yet another fatherless son, brought up by mama, NOT taught what fathers teach their sons.
They might STILL be up, via some "stimulant" stronger than coffee.
Did they stop teaching that whole lay/lie thing in journalism school?
I’m sure proper stance, grip, sight alignment and trigger control contributed to this masterpiece of marksmanship.
There's not a day that goes by that I don't see an egregious error in the media. lay/lie, marshall/martial, fewer/less, misplaced modifiers, and incorrect use of apostrophes.
Of course our president doesn't know when it's appropriate to say I or me.
"President Bush invited Michelle and I to the White House..."
I suspect this is an example of tge shoot first, ax questions later method.
I learned it in 4th grade.
Detective: So I bet you didn't intend to shoot your friend
Perp: Yo, that's right man. He just got in the way
Detective: Seems like just an accident, did you get your drugs back?
Perp: No, but I know where they live and I'm goona
Detective: Ok, just write everything down here, and everything will be fine
Perp: Yo, I thought you were going to let me walk? Acksident and all?
Detective: Is that your signature?
Detective: You're under arrest for Capitol Murder
Perp: (Crying), Mama, I didn't do it Mama, they tricked me Mama!
I especially like the ones where the perp claims it was an "Acksident" because
during the robbery the victim pulled on the gun and it "just went off".
The Detectives will agree up to the point when they have enough evidence.
Where he learned to shoot.
I appreciate the ping. However, I usually reserve the SC ping list for news items. Also, I have a tendency to not ping stories that make our fellow South Carolinians appear to be ignorant or stupid which, for the most part, we are not.
Dat boy, he done needed more range time.
They are too busy teaching journalists to lie to worry about the associated grammar.
Whaddaya mean "fatherless?"
