LUGOFF, S.C. (WIS) - The Kershaw County Coroner has identified a teen killed in a shooting at a gas station in Lugoff.

At around 1 a.m. on Tuesday, Kershaw County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the Kangaroo gas station on 601 South near I-20 where they found two gunshot victims.

One of the victims was pronounced dead in the parking lot. Coroner David West identified the deceased as Dashaun Kirkland, 19, of Elgin. West said Kirkland was an employee at the Kangaroo where the shooting happened.

The other victim was transported to the hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the arm, according to the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office.

Two suspects were taken into custody. Deputies say they believe all suspects involved are in custody.

In a Facebook post, deputies said they do not believe the shooting was a random incident and they have no reason to believe anyone in the area is in danger.
