An Aiken man was fatally shot early Saturday at another person’s home, and the injured suspect is being held for involuntary manslaughter.
Darry Jackson Redding, 37, of Windsor, S.C., fled from the home at 145 Inez Lane after someone heard two gunshot around 3:30 a.m. Saturday.
Aiken County deputies discovered 44-year-old Jesse Dale Senterfeit in a back bedroom with a gunshot wound to the face. He was rushed to Augusta University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
From an ACSO press release:
“Additional units responding to the home, spotted a gray in color Chevy Impala leaving the area at a high rate of speed. Deputies pursued the vehicle until it came to a stop in the 400 block of Gooseneck Road. Redding, the driver of the fleeing vehicle, was taken into custody where he was later transported by Aiken County EMS with what appeared to be a puncture wound underneath his left arm and an apparent gunshot wound to his left wrist.
“Redding was treated by medical staff and released. Redding was arrested by Richmond County Sheriff’s deputies and taken to the Richmond County Detention Center where he is being held pending extradition. Investigators have obtained warrants for Redding, charging him with Involuntary Manslaughter, Possession of a Weapon during a Violent Crime and Failure to Stop for Blue Lights and Siren.”
A person commits involuntary manslaughter when he or she causes the death of another while engaged in criminally negligent conduct—conduct showing a reckless disregard for the safety of others. The conduct does not necessarily have to be illegal itself. Involuntary manslaughter is still a serious crime punishable by up to five years in prison.
Coroner Darryl Ables said that the victim was shot after an altercation. Senterfeit will be autopsied in Newberry in the days to come.
Redding is a repeat offender with a long history of arrests in Aiken County assault and domestic violence.
