Two Aiken men shot in home invasion

Aiken County detectives are looking for a suspect in the shooting of two Aiken men this morning during a home invasion.


Shot in a bedroom were Carlos Kitchings, 19, and Anthony Mitchell, 28, both residents of a home in the 300 block of Shiloh Heights Road.

Another resident of the home said she heard a disturbance and gunshots inside the home and ran to a neighbor's house to call for help. While calling, she looked outside and reportedly saw three people dressed all in black and armed with guns run from her house.

The injured men were taken to Aiken Regional Medical Centers. Mr. Mitchell was treated for a gunshot to the side and released. Mr. Kitchings was shot in the chest and is currently in the intensive care unit.

According to the sheriff’s office, this is the second shooting at this location involving Mr. Kitchings.

On Jan. 28, Mr. Kitchings was shot in the leg and told investigators he did not know who shot him and that he did not wish to press any charges.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the sheriff’s office at (800) 922-9709.
