NORTH AUGUSTA, SC (WIS) - A Midlands man is dead and two others are injured after investigators say they were shot by the owner of a gun shop while trying to steal from the business early Thursday morning.

Aiken County Sheriff's Office investigators say the three men intentionally drove a truck into the Guns and Ammo Gunsmith in North Augusta around 4 a.m.

According to an incident report, the noise from the crash and the store's alarm woke the owner of the business who lives in the rear of the store with his wife.

The owner told investigators he grabbed his AR-15 and went into the store to see what was happening.

According to the report, one of the suspect shouted "kill the [expletive]," and that's when the owner emptied a 30 round magazine before retreating to his room to get more ammunition.

All three of the suspects were hit with gunfire.

Deputies say two of the alleged burglars, Eddie Stewart, 20, of Columbia and Franklin Robinson, 17, of Gadsden, drove to a nearby Waffle House.

The third, 20-year-old K'Raven Aude Goodwin of Eastover, was found inside the business. He died shortly after being taken to Georgia Health Sciences University hospital, according to the coroner.

Stewart and Franklin remain at an area hospital.

No charges have been filed.
