COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - A Columbia man turned himself in to investigators Wednesday in connection with the death of a 17-year-old on Bonner Avenue.

Columbia police say 33-year-old Shannon Anthony Scott fired several rounds from a handgun in the area early Sunday morning.  Investigators believe one of those rounds struck Darrell Niles and killed him.

It's the fourth time since February a man has been found shot to death in a car in Columbia.  Columbia police don't believe the crimes are connected.

Scott is currently being held at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing.
