Grandmother of slain teen pleads for info: 'God's already got you'

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

The family of an 18-year-old man killed in Summerton and the Clarendon County sheriff held a news conference Friday to issue an emotional plea for information in the 2-month-old case.

Sheriff Randy Garrett says 18-year-old Shahed Holliday was shot and killed just before midnight February 6 at his uncle's home on Furse Road near Summerton.

Garrett openly admitted that the trail in this case has gone cold and that things needed to heat up if they were going to make an arrest.

"The information is there," said Garrett. "It's out there. We believe our suspects are right here in Clarendon County. 

Holliday's grandmother, Sarah Holliday, also asked for the suspects to turn themselves in to agents.

"To the person that did this, as a Christian, I forgive you for what you have done," said Holliday. "I feel, though, that you made a bad choice in life and you should come out. Don't be a coward. Just come out and face the facts because we don't know who you are, we don't know where you are, but guess what? God's already got you, so you might as well confess."

Family members spent the day handing out fliers in the neighborhood to help raise awareness for the case.

If you know anything that can help investigators, you're asked to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
