CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - Almost four months after a shooting that injured one man and killed another on Sixth Avenue in Conway, a 16-year-old male has pleaded guilty and charges have been dropped against another suspect.

Though few details were released at the time, Conway Police spokeswoman Catina Hipp confirmed a shooting was reported on the 2000 block of Sixth Avenue in Conway around 2:36 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 7.

Catina explains that the shots were fired outside of a home where police found the two male gunshot victims. They were both transported to Conway Medical Center and then transferred to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center.

One of the men was shot in the leg and was treated for a non-life-threatening injury.

The other man, identified as 36-year-old Sylvester Lorenzo Bell Jr. was shot in the head and shoulder, Catina comments. Bell was listed in critical condition after surgery at Grand Strand Regional Medical Center, and was declared dead around noon on the following day.

Police on scene were spotted with metal detectors, searching the crime scene for any bullet casings. Authorities are looking for a White Nissan Maxima, but did not have a description of the suspected shooter. Residents say this is a dangerous area.

On Tuesday, Feb. 26, 19-year-old Rashad Derller Burroughs of Conway was arrested and charged with murder and two counts of attempted murder.

On the Friday following the shooting, a juvenile turned himself in to Conway Police for this same shooting. He is also charged with murder and two counts of attempted murder.

In early May, that juvenile, 16-year-old Hansien Ransom of Conway, waived his right to trial and agreed to be charged as an adult when pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter.

When sentenced, Ransom could spend between 10 and 25 years in prison. As a condition of his plea, the charges against another juvenile being detained in connection to this shooting have been dropped.
