Suspect Charged in Fagan Road Shooting

DeAntray L. Dye

Shooter Remains at Large

WINNSBORO – One of the men wanted in a Feb. 28 shooting incident on Fagan Road is behind bars, having turned himself in to Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office investigators earlier this week.

Capt. Brad Douglas said DeAntray L. Dye, 29, of Caution Drive, Winnsboro, handed himself over to police Sunday and is now behind bars at the Fairfield County Detention Center, facing charges of attempted murder. A second suspect, a Great Falls man the Sheriff’s Office asked to not be identified, remains at large. The second suspect has been fingered as the shooter in the Feb. 28 incident that sent Tyrone Kelly, 38, to Fairfield Memorial Hospital with a through-and-through gunshot wound to the shoulder and a grazing wound on his right temple.

According to the original report of the incident, Kelly was involved in an argument with Dye outside his home at 824 Fagan Road on the night of Feb. 28. Kelly told investigators that during the argument Dye instructed a second man, who Kelly then identified as 24-year-old Jarrett Omar Lawson, of Circle Street in Great Falls, to shoot Kelly. Witnesses inside the home told investigators that they heard two gunshots, then saw Kelly run into the house, bleeding from a wound in his left shoulder. A witness at the scene drove Kelly to Fairfield Memorial Hospital, where he was treated and released.

Lawson turned himself in during the early morning hours of March 2 and he was initially charged with assault and battery with attempt to kill. Lawson was released on a $25,000 personal recognizance bond on March 3 after Kelly backtracked on the identity of the shooter. The Sheriff’s Office said they now have corroborative information that the sought-after Great Falls man, and not Lawson, was the shooter. The Sheriff’s Office is coordinating with units in Chester County in the search.
