Authorities have charged four men in connection with the murder of a Hendersonville High School graduate who died in the back yard of a party in Goose Creek, S.C.
Kyle Shirlin, a 2015 graduate of HHS, was pronounced dead after he was shot in the chest in the backyard of a party that had attracted 80 to 100 people, police reports said.
Multiple media outlets reported that the Goose Creek Police Department charged three men with murder and one with accessory after the fact. Charged with murder were Michael Dwayne Smith, 20, of Wadmalaw Island; Riccardo RaShawn Jenkins, 23, Hollywood; and Ali Shaheim Smalls, 26, of Ladson. Jamal Deangelo White, 25, of Ladson, was charged with accessory after the fact.
In the days after the Aug. 21 shooting police received confessions from White, who told them Jenkins pulled the trigger, the Charleston Post and Courier reported. White admitted to driving Jenkins away from the crime scene.
