Anson County Sheriff’s Deputies are investigating a shooting that occurred early Sunday morning in Lilesville.
At 3:20 a.m. on July 1, deputies were dispatched to Parson Road in Lilesville to a residence belonging to Donny Huntley. At the residence, Bradley Bennett had been shot several times allegedly by an individual identified by witnesses as Dameon Yimaine Thomas, who had left the scene following the shooting.
Bennett is in Carolinas Medical Center in critical condition with leg and stomach wounds. Anson County Sheriff Tommy Allen said that Bennett was shot several times. Witnesses told investigators that Thomas fired a handgun four or five times at Bennett following some kind of altercation between the two.
A warrant is on file with the Anson County Sheriff’s Office for Thomas on charges of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, inflicting serious injury. Deputies have been unable to locate Thomas as press time.
Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Dameon Thomas should call the Anson County Sheriff’s Office at 704-694-4188. All information will be confidential.
“This was the second shooting of an individual at this residence in the past two months,” Sheriff Allen said. “On May 2, Grant Hines was shot in the leg by an unknown subject at this Huntley house. The victim and witnesses were most uncooperative and we never really learned what really happened on this incident.”
