Members of the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office are continuing their investigation into the Oct. 15 Adams Run shooting that claimed the life of a 26-year-old Walterboro man.
Wayne Keith Bennett, 26, of Ordell Court in Walterboro, was pronounced dead at the trauma unit of the Medical University of South Carolina facilities in Charleston.
Members of the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office were sent to Willtown Road in Adams Run Saturday shortly after 6 p.m. to investigate a report of gunfire.
As they were traveling to the 8300 block of Willtown Road, dispatchers reported that a private vehicle transporting Bennett had arrived at the St. Paul Fire Department station on Highway 162.
Deputies split up — some continuing on to Willtown Road and others racing to the fire station.
At the fire station, they found Bennett lying in the bed of a pickup truck driven by a 30-year-old Walterboro man. The man told deputies that he removed Bennett in his vehicle, placed him in the bed of his pickup and drove him to the fire station.
Paramedics based at the station transported Bennett to MUSC’s trauma center, where he was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.
The deputies arriving on Willtown Road found Bennett’s pickup truck off the roadway, where it had struck several mailboxes and stopped after hitting a tree. The truck was still in gear with the engine running.
The rear of the truck had several bullet holes, and one of the bullets had shattered the rear window of the truck. Deputies also found several shell casings in the roadway.
A canvas of residents of the area failed to locate any witnesses to the incident.
According to the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office, no suspects have been identified in the shooting death and no motive has been uncovered.
Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call Crimestoppers at 843-554-1111.

    Yes their is a motive and why this young man was killed. I have heard it from different people that it was over money. This young man won a race and someone else said they won the race. They both argued about who won the race. So why don’t someone from the race speak up. I was not there but everyone is talking about it and it sounds like who ever argue about who won the race and who gets the money had something to do with this young man murder. If this was my friend or family and I knew what happened to him I would speak up don’t be afraid. I think they are afraid they might be killed if they tell what really happened. I hope they find out who did this.

    I heard he had the purse money from both racers and he took off with it because he thought a race wasn’t fair that’s thousands of dollars he had to know what was going to happen

    Unfortunately, a number of people in the substance abuse industry have been the most outspoken opponents of medical marijuana. They apparently feel that since they themselves cannot use this substance that NO ONE should be allowed to use it. Yet less than 10% of marijuana users ever experience withdrawal symptoms and these symptoms are relatively mild, about equivalent to caffeine withdrawal. The heartfelt and passionate opposition to medical marijuana by recovering addicts is keeping this relatively safe and effective therapeutic agent from countless patients who could benefit from it.
