CONWAY, S.C. (WMBF) – Six people have been charged in connection with a deadly shooting that happened in Conway earlier this month.

On Sept. 12, officers with the Horry County Police Department responded to reports of a shooting near D Street and Rose Moss Road in Conway. Jamie Johnson, 19, was initially taken to an area hospital for treatment, but later died from his injuries, authorities said.

Over the course of the investigation, HCPD determined that three people were in a vehicle with Johnson when they were approached by another vehicle, from which several suspects exited and then began shooting, according to investigators.
