UPDATE (11:20 p.m. Friday): Two arrests have been made and the victim of Thursday night's shooting has been identified.

Original story: Richland County authorities are investigating a shooting Thursday night that left one man dead and investigators seeking three suspects.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call of shots fired shortly before 8 p.m. at the Food Fair convenience store at 7426 Hunt Club Road, Sheriff’s Department spokesman Curtis Wilson said.

A unidentified white male had been shot in the upper body while sitting in a vehicle in the parking lot. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Late Thursday night, Richland County authorities said they were looking for three suspects, two men and a woman. Surveillance video of the Food Fair parking lot shows two of the suspects and the car that one of the men and the woman fled in. The other male suspect fled on foot.

Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said the getaway car, a ‘metallic blue or silver’ Honda, has damage to the rear driver side door and custom wheel rims.

Investigators believe the male victim and the suspects knew each other.
