BEAUFORT, S.C. -

Beaufort Police are investigating the shooting death of 27 year old Tyrice Washington of Seabrook, according to a Beaufort County Sheriff's Office news release.

"It's almost like it's not real," Darene Scott says. As Washington's mother mourned her son's passing, she selected Scott to speak on her behalf.

"Words can't express what they're going through," Scott says. "Being a mother, losing your first born..." she says she can't imagine.

The family says there are still unanswered questions behind the murder of their loved one.

Captain Bob Bromage of the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office says emergency dispatch was contacted at 9:55 Saturday night by Beaufort Memorial Hospital, to report a gunshot victim was dropped off at their emergency room. 

Bromage says Washington was pronounced dead at that time, as the unknown suspect then fled from the hospital. Within minutes, a white Chevrolet Tahoe was stopped by Beaufort Police at the intersection of Highways 21 and 170. 

Investigation proved that the driver, Quinton Delaney, Jr., dropped off Washington at the hospital. Bromage says investigators found a hand gun in plain sight inside his car. 

Where the shooting occurred and the circumstances behind the shooting are still under investigation at this time. 

"Why somebody at the age of 27 is not here with us to live a full life...we don't know when our time is up," Scott says.

"He was just one of those guys. He loved the Lord, and his mother said that every time they talked to each other they said they love each other," she says.

She says the entire Seabrook community will mourn the loss.

Delaney was charged with Unlawful Carrying of a Handgun and Unlawful Possession of a Handgun with Obliterated Serial Number. 

If anyone has information, they are urged to call Sgt. Jeremiah Fraser (843)255-3426, Cpl. Jason Malphrus (843)255-3426, or Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIMESC.
