VIDEO: Coroner identifies man killed in Dorchester Co. shooting; two others injured

DORCHESTER COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - The Dorchester County Coroner’s Office has identified a man who died in a Dorchester County shooting which injured two other people in an early Monday morning shooting.

Authorities say 18-year-old Nicholas Payton Davis of Summerville was transported to Trident Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead at 11:08 a.m.

“The body is scheduled for an autopsy on March 10, 2020 at the Medical University of South Carolina,” Coroner Paul Brouthers said.

The investigation into the shooting began at 1:32 a.m. when deputies responded to Cady Drive in reference to a shooting.

When the deputy arrived on the scene he saw two men lying on the ground next to each other with each suffering from gunshot wounds.

One of the victims spoke to the deputy and said he had been shot in the leg.

Both of those victims were then transported to Trident Medical Center.

Investigators then found a third victim at the porch of a residence just behind the Cady Drive home. That victim had suffered a gunshot wound to his right side near his chest and left arm.

A report states the victim told deputies he got shot on Cady Drive at the same location the other two victims were found.
