Aiken man, 19, dies after being shot in his car

A 19-year-old was shot in the head while in his car Sunday night, police said.


Yuvanda Pope told Aiken Public Safety that her boyfriend, Moses Williams, drove her home around 11:30 p.m., Lt. David Turno said.

Shortly after she went inside, she heard what she thought was a gunshot, ran back outside and found Williams, of Princess Lane in Aiken, slumped over with what appeared to be a gunshot wound to the head.

Pope’s sister, Shawiday Pope, shoved him over to the passenger side and drove him to Aiken Regional Medical Centers, where he was later pronounced dead.

According to his obituary, Williams was a 2011 graduate of Aiken High School, and he had a son in Columbia.
