REMBERT, S.C. - Authorities say one man died and three were injured in a shootout during an attempted robbery in rural South Carolina.

Multiple media outlets report Wednesday that deputies found 21-year-old Kemper Holiday dead in the living room of a Rembert home, with 48-year-old Hugh Phillips lying next to him. Phillips had been shot in the back.

A police report says two men ran in the house and tried to rob those inside Monday night, then shot Holiday, Phillips and 30-year-old Orlando McCray. He went to the hospital before police arrived.
