LANCASTER, S.C. (AP) — Authorities in South Carolina are searching for a convicted felon charged with murder in a bar shooting that killed two people and wounded eight others.

Faile had said authorities believe Stevens had a dispute with one of the slain men. He previously served time on drug and robbery charges.
