FORT MILL, S.C. (WBTV) - A man killed in a shooting at a Circle K in Fort Mill Friday has been identified by officials as 25-year-old Sy’Veon My’Veon Howard.

Police are looking for 23-year-old Anquante El-Malik Lemel Watts in connection to the deadly shooting. A warrant for murder has been issued for Watts.

Police responded to the convenience store’s 681 US Highway 21 Bypass location around 11:15 p.m. When they got there, they found a man, later identified as Howard, on the ground with a gunshot wound. He was surrounded by a group of people.

Howard was taken to an area hospital where he later died.
