Much like with the daily shootings in places like Chicago, St. Louis and Baltimore, this next story will once again make you ask the question, ‘Where’s the outrage?’

Charles Nicholas Wall and his 21-year-old step-daughter Laura Ashley Anderson were murdered in cold blood on August 24 after a fender bender seemingly cause by the shooter. A third victim, identified as Paul McConnell, survived the ordeal sustaining a gunshot wound to his left wrist.

The suspect also reportedly “bludgeoned [McConnell] with the same firearm about his head and face, WPDE reported.

According to The Blaze:

The shooting happened around 5 p.m. on Aug. 24 when the stepfather went to deliver keys to Anderson after she accidentally locked herself out of her newly-purchased home. She had just moved in and was selling an old set of bunk beds to someone online, who was coming over to make the pick-up.

Wall's car was allegedly rear-ended as he turned into the driveway of Anderson's home. Walters reportedly got out of his vehicle and shot Wall, Anderson, and McConnell.

The suspect has been identified by the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office as 23-year-old Ty Sheem Ha Sheem Walters III.

Anderson had just moved into a new home and had locked herself out, so Wall came by to help her get in with another set of keys. Anderson was trying to become a teacher like her mother, Kimberly Wall.

A close friend of the family couldn’t comprehend why someone would do what they did because of a minor accident, if that indeed was Walters’ reasoning for the shooting.

“I don't understand how a simple fender bender they called it could turn into double murder and an attempted to murder," Lynn Lambert said. "Why? I honestly didn't think it was real. Who does this?”
