BLUFFTON, S.C. (WSAV) – Authorities have identified a young man who died Monday in a shooting outside of a Bluffton church.
According to Beaufort County Coroner Ed Allen, the victim has been identified as 18-year-old Trey Blackshear.
He was found dead around 2:20 p.m. at the Lord Lutheran Church parking lot, located off of Buckwalter Parkway.
Bluffton Police say they’re searching for two suspects who ran from the scene before officers arrived. A description of the suspects was not immediately available.
“There is no reason to believe there is a threat to the general public,” Bluffton Police said, adding that they don’t believe the victim or suspects had any connection to the church.
Allen tells News 3 an autopsy will be performed Friday morning.
