Man turns himself in after deadly Cheraw convenience store shooting

One man is dead and another behind bars after a shooting over the weekend in Chesterfield County.

CHERAW, S.C. -- Police say a man has been shot to death in the parking lot of a South Carolina convenience store.

Cheraw Police said 32-year-old Michael Powe died at the hospital shortly after he was wounded around 8:30 p.m. Saturday at the Money Saver store in Cheraw. Officers said they found Powe in the convenience store's parking lot with multiple gunshot wounds.

Authorities say several people saw the shooting and it was captured on surveillance cameras which led them to naming 24-year-old Shavelle McDonald as a suspect. 

After an arrest warrant for murder was issued for McDonald, he turned himself into authorities Sunday. Family members of McDonald called police prior to turning himself in to tell them he was on the way. 

McDonald is being held without bond and faces additional charges for possession of a firearm while committing a felony. He is expected in court later within the week.
