1 dead, 2 injured in S. Carolina shooting spree

One person was killed and two others severely injured after a man went on a shooting spree with an assault-style weapon in the parking lots of three restaurants along an interstate. William Levon Powell, Jr., 61, died of a single gunshot wound to his head after a gunman opened fire on him and another man while they exited their cars at the Huddle House restaurant early Tuesday morning, The Aiken Standard reported in a story for Wednesday's editions. Police said Powell was shot in the face. Authorities described the shooter as a thin, white man in his 20s. "Everything we can see about this crime at this point is that it is totally random which makes this individual extremely dangerous," said North Augusta Public Safety Director Lee Wetherington. A man and a woman were also shot, and another woman was carjacked at gunpoint.
