2 Gaston teens charged in deadly shooting

Lexington, S.C. – Lexington County deputies have located and arrested two teens charged in connection with a fatal shooting Friday night.

Daniel Taylor Jones, 18, and Christopher David Shumpert, 19, are charged with murder, attempted murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime, according to arrest warrants.

Barry Chavis Jr. was fatally shot during the incident, according to Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher. A second man who was shot is expected to recover, according to investigators.

“Based on interviews detectives conducted with witnesses, Jones and Shumpert had a long-running disagreement with the other two men,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Jones and Shumpert went to Chavis’ house in the 3600 block of Fish Hatchery Road last night where they continued to argue with the two men.”

Jones and Shumpert each fired multiple shots toward the two men outside the home, according to Koon.

“Deputies arrested Jones a short time after the shooting at his Gaston home,” Koon said. “Investigators located Shumpert at an Aiken hotel with the help of Aiken County deputies and arrested him without incident.”

Both men are being held in the Lexington County Detention Center.
