GEORGETOWN COUNTY, S.C. (WMBF) – Three students at Waccamaw High School have been arrested in connection to a robbery and deadly shooting Wednesday night in Pawleys Island, authorities said.

According to a press release from the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office, 17-year-old Aiden Marshall Zasimoritch, 18-year-old Colby Barnes, and a 15-year-old juvenile were all taken into custody Thursday at the school following interviews.

Investigators said the robbery and shooting were not related to any school event or activity. They also added that no weapons were at the school and students were not in any danger.

Zasimoritch is considered to be an adult due to the nature of the allegations, authorities said. All charges are pending.
