Aspiring teacher, 21, and stepfather, 45, shot dead 'after being rear-ended by armed driver'

AN aspiring teacher and her stepfather were fatally shot on Monday by a man who moments earlier had rear-ended the stepfather's car.

Laura Ashley Anderson, 21, and Charles Nicholas Wall, 45, were killed in Georgetown, South Carolina, outside of the home Anderson had recently purchased.


Wall had driven over to the house to drop off a spare set of keys with Anderson, who was almost finished moving in and had forgotten her set.

Ty Sheem Ha Sheem Walters III, 23, has been arrested and charged with murder.

Police said that he rear-ended Wall in Anderson's driveway, then opened fire, killing Wall and Anderson.

A third person, Paul McConnell, was shot as well but is expected to survive.

"It actually happened in her yard, waiting for the keys to get to her," Lynn Lambert, a friend of the family, told WPDE-TV.

Walter fled the scene on foot and attempted to escape into nearby woods, where he was tracked down by police K-9 units and detained shortly after.

He faces two counts of murder and one count of attempted murder.

"I'm devastated. Heartbroken. Confused. Angry. I don't understand. Who shoots innocent people?" wrote Kimberly Wall, mother of Anderson and wife of Charles Wall, in a Facebook post.

"[Anderson] wanted to be a teacher like her momma," Lambert told WPDE.

"She was getting ready to start school. She was getting everything in order. Everything was starting to fall in place for her."

A bond hearing is scheduled for Walter on Wednesday, Aug. 26 at 9 a.m.
