One Dead in Beaufort Gunfight

A gunfight in the Low Country has one man in the hospital, another dead, and another on the run. It happened Wednesday night in Beaufort at Heritage Woods apartments.

William Bell came home and found three people in his apartment. At least one had a gun and shot Bell. Then he pulled his gun and shot back, killing 19-year-old Herbert Washington.

Police got there and arrested 18-year-old Joseph Jenkins, but they're still looking for O'Neil Washington, possibly the third intruder.
