SANTEE, S.C. — Orangeburg County sheriff’s deputies say a Santee woman trying to sell her cellphone shot and killed another woman who complained the phone did not work.

Authorities said 35-year-old Tonya Lemon died Saturday night after being rushed to the hospital in a car.

Investigators say 28-year-old Adrienne Randolph was trying to sell her cellphone to Lemon’s friend, but it didn’t work and Lemon was complaining.

Deputies say Randolph came back with a gun, shooting first at Lemon’s feet and then at her chest.

Randolph is charged with murder and remains in jail.

No longer deserves to consume oxygen. Killing someone over a cellphone sale. I'd love to know if the gun was registered or stolen. A true stupid idiot, that had no business having access to a gun.

The needle is an equal opportunity solution to anyone who kills another, unless it is in self-defense or an true accident. Even those that would kill a kid for a pair of Nikes.

"SC woman shot, killed over cellphone" Wow, I did not know you could do that over the phone. I have sent e-mails, texts, calls and pictures but now, I had better be careful about who calls next!

Cell Phones are the new NIKES

There is always something people feel justified in killing for and it will be something different in a few years.

Any guesses...
