NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say one man is dead and two others hospitalized after they crashed a van into a North Augusta gun store to steal weapons and were shot by the owner, who lived behind the business.
The Aiken County Coroner's Office says 20-year-old K'Raven Goodwin of Eastover was killed and the two men with him remain in the hospital after the shooting around 4 a.m. Thursday.
Deputies say the owner was checking on an alarm at his store when he confronted and shot the men. Investigators would not say if the men were armed or fired back.
Authorities say the two shooting survivors ran to a nearby Waffle House to call for help, while the third man was found in the store.
No charges have been filed as an investigation continues.
