A 59-year-old grandmother and her 9-month-old grandson were shot and killed following an apparent domestic dispute, and authorities in Clarendon County have charged the boy's father in the deaths.
Sheriff Randy Garrett says 21-year-old Justin Jermaine Johnson is charged with two counts of murder. Johnson is also charged with attempted murder after his 21-year-old girlfriend was shot in the shoulder. The woman, who was identified by Garrett as the boy's mother, is hospitalized with non life-threatening injuries following Wednesday morning's shootings.
The victims were shot with a 12-gauge shotgun. Garrett said the identities of the victims are being withheld pending notification of relatives.
The sheriff said Johnson was being interrogated at the Clarendon County Detention Center Wednesday evening. Garrett said Johnson had not requested an attorney.
