A 19-year-old is charged with murder in the Wednesday night shooting death of an 18-year-old girl in Chesterfield County.
Investigators say Ryu Hough, who was being sought in the killing of Amber Horton, turned himself in Friday.
Witnesses told deputies Horton and a friend were traveling on Highway 151 near Pageland Wednesday night when Hough started following them in a dark blue Dodge Charger. Hough then reportedly pulled up and fired several shots, striking Horton, witnesses say.
Deputies say they arrived to find Horton with a gunshot would to her upper torso. She was taken to Carolinas Medical Center-Union in Monroe where she died.
Deputies asked the community to be on the lookout for Hough, who was to be considered “armed and dangerous.”
No possible motive was released.
According to a Chesterfield County Sheriff’s Office incident report, Hough turned himself in nearly three months ago for a weapons charge. The report accuses him and another man of getting into a “gun battle” in Pageland. According to the report, a woman’s mobile home had four holes in it and her car window was busted out.
Hough was out on bond for the weapons charge when Wednesday night’s shooting happened.
Helen Faile lives across the street from the Horton family and was saddened by the news.
“It just broke my heart, especially for the grandparents because over the years I always knew them and I know they’re a good family and it really it just broke my heart,” Faile said.
Horton’s brother told WBTV’s Kristi O’Connor that he and his family were not yet ready to comment.
