Quenterio Jamal Wilson

At least one person suffered injuries from a shooting incident during a post-funeral gathering in Elgin on Sunday evening. The KCSO is seeking the whereabouts of 22-year-old Quenterio Jamal Wilson, 22, of Dixon Road, Elgin in connection with the shooting.

According to a KCSO press release, deputies responded to a report of the shooting on Dixon Road in Elgin around 7:15 p.m. Sunday. Upon arrival, deputies found a large crowd of people who had gathered following a funeral service held earlier in the day in Richland County for a woman who died in a Camden automobile accident on Feb. 8.

Kershaw County Coroner David West previously identified the woman as 23-year-old Ashley Dixon of Elgin. West said she died between 2 and 2:30 a.m. Feb. 8 after attempting to turn right from West DeKalb Street on to Chestnut Ferry Road and struck a heavy post supporting a traffic signal light.

According to the KCSO, some witnesses at Sunday’s shooting incident were, at first, reluctant to cooperate with deputies. They eventually indicated there was a confrontation between two men resulting in one of the men being shot between his shoulder and neck. The victim identified Wilson as the shooter.

Following the shooting, Wilson reportedly fled the scene. The KCSO brought in tracking bloodhounds, but due to excessive contamination of the scene, they were unable to successfully track Wilson. Deputies did not recover the .40 caliber pistol allegedly used in the shooting and believe Wilson is still in possession of it.

Later that evening, KCSO investigators learned a second subject had shown up at Palmetto Health in Richland County with a gunshot wound to the hand. At this point, investigators have not been able to determine if the gunshot wound resulted from the Dixon Road incident.

Wilson is described as a black male, 5 feet 6 inches tall and 194 pounds. He is to considered armed and dangerous. According to the KCSO, Dixon has previous arrests for multiple offenses of unlawful carrying of a weapon, criminal conspiracy, first and second degree burglary, breaking into an automobile, open container of alcohol in motor vehicle, possession of marijuana, giving false information and traffic offenses.

Anyone with information as to Wilson’s whereabouts should contact KCSO Inv. Miles Taylor at (803) 425-1512.
