LANCASTER, S.C. -- Authorities in Lancaster are investigating after a 19-year-old was shot and killed Tuesday night. 

Lancaster Police say they responded to the 400 block of Caroline Court around 9:45 p.m. and found a black SUV with numerous bullet holes.

As officers began to investigate, they say a 19-year-old, identified as Mar'Quise Deshun Evans, walked from behind the apartments and collapsed. 

"This young man had obvious trauma, consistent with that of a shooting victim," police said.
