Graniteville Teen Killed & Mom Injured in Drive-By Shootings!


A Graniteville teen was killed and his mother was injured Wednesday night in a shooting incident at their home on Williamson Drive, authorities said.

Johnathan V. Taylor, 19, of 220 Williamson Drive (pictured), was pronounced dead at Aiken Regional Medical Centers Wednesday night shortly before 11 p.m. after being shot at his home during a drive-by shooting a few hours before.  The teen’s mother, Mary Wilson, was also injured during the shooting and was transported to Augusta University Medical Centers.

A sheriff’s press release says deputies responded at 8:55 p.m. and found a woman in the home with a single gunshot wound to her stomach and a man outside of the home with a gunshot wound to the head. The man later died at the hospital.

“Investigators discovered that there were multiple rounds fired that struck the residence and vehicles parked in the front yard,” sheriff’s Sgt. Steve Shunn said in a press release. “There is no description of the subjects or vehicle that left the scene at this time.”
