Steven Elmore


A teenager is being sought as a possible witness to a fatal shooting on Wednesday, according to the Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office.

“We were given the name of an individual who may have seen more than what we’ve developed up to this point,” Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said.

“We’re told he had a better vantage point than others near this incident,” Ravenell said.

Ravenell said Steven Elmore of Orangeburg is being sought for information after other witnesses related that the 16-year-old was at the scene of the fatal shooting.

Orangeburg County Sheriff’s investigators were called out to Sulton Drive just after 2 p.m. Wednesday after witnesses said a confrontation between two men resulted in shots being fired.

One of the combatants died as a result, investigators said.

The motive behind the fatal confrontation is still being investigated. No suspect is in custody.

Orangeburg County Coroner Samuetta Marshall said Wednesday the identity of the shooting victim will not being released until the next of kin can be notified. Once that is accomplished, the coroner’s office will release that information.

The name of the deceased was not immediately available from the Orangeburg County Coroner’s Office.
