ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) -- A man wanted for a shooting death in Orangeburg County has surrendered to sheriff's deputies.

Sheriff Leroy Ravenell told local media outlets that 36-year-old Shagura Ramon Mack turned himself in around 6:15 p.m. Monday.

Ravenell said officers were called to the Regional Medical Center in Orangeburg shortly before 12:30 a.m. Sunday after a man came to the hospital with a gunshot wound to the abdomen.

Deputy Coroner Sean Fogle says 29-year-old Jermaine Holloway of Orangeburg died a short time later.

Mack is charged with murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime. It was not clear if he has an attorney.

The sheriff said the preliminary investigation shows that Holloway and a friend had gone to meet an acquaintance when Mack ran to their vehicle and began firing.
