Coroner: Bullet Through Back Killed S.C. Woman
ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say a 21-year-old woman was fatally shot in the back outside an Anderson nightclub before her bullet-ridden pickup struck a utility pole.
An autopsy showed that India Lomax died from the gunshot wound. Deputies found her and passenger Willis Donald after her truck hit a parked car and pole about 4 a.m. Saturday. The mother of three died at the scene. Donald had been shot in the arm.
Investigators say Lomax crashed after leaving Marvon’s.
The State Law Enforcement Division is investigating the actions of private security guard Joey Johnson Jr.
Johnson told investigators he tried to stop the truck because Donald had a gun and opened fire in self-defense when it veered toward him.
Investigators found 11 bullet holes on the truck’s driver’s side, tailgate and rear window.
