Authorities say man shot, pushed from car in South Carolina

May 12, 2019

AIKEN, S.C. (AP) — Authorities in South Carolina are investigating after they say a man with multiple gunshot wounds was thrown from a moving vehicle.

The State newspaper reports that a 911 call came in just before 11 p.m. Saturday about a person being thrown from moving vehicle just north of Aiken. The Aiken County sheriff’s office says deputies found a man with apparent gunshot wounds in his upper torso.

Witnesses provided aid, but the sheriff’s office says emergency responders pronounced the man dead at the scene. Witnesses told deputies the man was pushed out of a dark, four-door car that didn’t stop.

The man’s name is being withheld until his family can be notified.
