Spartanburg, South Carolina – Police are still looking for suspects in a shooting that killed a teen-ager and wounded three women late Friday night in Spartanburg’s Collins Parks Community, a police spokesman said.

Malcolm R. Crawford, 17, of 290 Westover Drive, was pronounced dead at Spartanburg Regional Medical Center, according to Randy Bogan of the Spartanburg Coroner’s Office.

The three women were identified as Cassandra Fowler, 19, of 1000 Lucerne Drive; Shantericka Bennett, 19, of 235 Fox Hall Road, and Latrice Wilburn, 22, of 443-B Drive OC Kirkland Terrance, according to police Capt. Steve Lamb, a spokesman for the city of Spartanburg. They were in “fair” condition, said hospital spokesman Chad Lawson.

The gunman was still at large late Saturday, Lamb said.

When officers arrived at OC Kirkland Terrance at 11 p.m., they found the women, he said. By then, Crawford was en route to the hospital, where he died, Lamb said.

Officers responding to the shootings tried to stop a Chevrolet Suburban on North Church Street, he said. The Suburban slowed and several people got out and ran away, according to Lamb. More on Greenville Online
