The Richland County Sheriff’s Department responded to a call of a potential homicide at an apartment complex Tuesday afternoon.

According to deputies, they arrived to a scene on 1401 Longcreek Drive, Waters at Longcreek Apartments, around 3:20 p.m. to investigate a shooting.

Deputies say a man inside his vehicle was found with an apparent gunshot wound to the upper body.

According to the Richland County Sheriff’s Department, the man found was immediately rushed to an area hospital and later pronounced dead.

One neighbor of Waters at Longcreek Apartments said she has been living in the complex for two years and has never experienced anything like this.

“Nobody deserves to die, it’s not your life to take,” another neighbor said.

Mitchell and Gaulman turned themselves in Wednesday and booked into Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
