Bennettsville Police were called to a home on Fayetteville Avenue, December 30, for an eight year boy who was shot.What kind of investigation does it take to determine who was responsible and to charge them? It takes about an hour. Belaboring it with a lengthy investigation and the possibility of no charges because it was just an accident is a disgrace.
LT. Larry Turner said the child was accidentally by a family member. The child was taken by ambulance to Marlboro Park Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
Marlboro County Coroner Tim Brown, identified the child as Easton Brudger, from Clio. He said Brudger was visiting his father in Bennettsville. He died from a single gunshot wound to the abdomen.
No charges have been filed yet by the Bennettsville Police Department and the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division. The investigation continues.
Whenever a kid is shot, an adult should be held accountable.
