|Emani Puckett, age 17|
The homeowner was hit in the head but is fine. The two men with Emani escaped, but their names are known to law enforcement.
From an article:
The teenager, Emani Puckett, entered a home on Burris Street in west Anderson along with two men on Sunday night, according to a deputy’s report.
They had come to rob homeowner Kevin Pierce, 21, who was hit in the head with a handgun by someone in the group, Pierce told deputies.
Pierce and Puckett struggled in the kitchen while the other men rummaged through the house. In the altercation, Puckett was shot several times, the two men and Pierce’s girlfriend fled the home.
Puckett was found, barely alive, outside of the mobile home next to a semi-automatic pistol and she died hours later at AnMed Health Medical Center. Pierce was taken to AnMed Health Medical Center, too, and released.
The other two men fled the home, said Chad McBride, spokesman for the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office.
According to another article and video, Emani may have been shot with her own weapon after one of the homeowners wrestled it out of her hands.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
