WILLISTON, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT) - In a case that bears a striking similarity to one in Orangeburg County, a man was shot dead when he answered his door on Christmas Day in Williston.

The Barnwell County Coroner’s Office and the Williston Police Department are investigating the death of William Glen Womack, 61, of Elko Street.

Details remain extremely limited but they say an unknown subject shot Womack as he answered his door around 11:10 a.m. on Christmas Day.

He was pronounced dead at 11:44 a.m.

An autopsy will be performed.

The shooting comes after another one in Orangeburg County also left a man dead after he answered a knock at the door.

On Dec. 14, investigators were sent to a residence on Myers Road where a caller stated someone in the home had been shot. Investigators found a 49-year-old male on the floor just inside the doorway with what appeared to be a gunshot wound.

Investigators are seeking 18-year-old Aloysius Green, of Orangeburg, and 19-year-old Andrew Tobin, of Orangeburg, as people of interest in the case.
