The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office has identified the teenager killed at an apartment complex in Hilton Head on Sunday night.

Deputies say they found 19-year-old Davontae Grant, of Bluffton, dead at Hilton Head Gardens apartments.

An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston.

Another victim was found with multiple gunshot wounds. That victim is listed in critical condition in Savannah.

We spoke to several people who heard the shots outside of their door and called 911.

"We were sitting here and the next thing you heard was ‘pow pow pow pow,’” one woman said. “There’s going to be retaliation. They gone come back. They gone come back.”

The woman says after she heard the loud bangs, she called 911.

“That’s so sad. That’s so sad. He didn’t even know what life was all about.”

Hilton Head Gardens has been this woman’s home for 19 years. She says she has seen a lot of crime there over time.

“Drive-by shootings. It’s a lot.”

She says she and her family don’t have any plans to move anytime soon, but it is in fact scary to live in fear because of incidents like these happening at the place where she has made many memories.

“Good reason to be scared because bullets don’t have no names,” she said.
