BEAUFORT, S.C. (AP) - Authorities are investigating the shooting death of a man dropped off at Beaufort Memorial Hospital by someone who then drove off.

Investigators said 27-year-old Tyrice Washington was dead about the time he arrived at the hospital at 10 p.m. Saturday.

Beaufort County deputies say the person who dropped off Washington refused to give his name before driving away. A few minutes later, police pulled over a similar SUV, finding a gun inside with the serial number removed.

The man in the SUV faces weapons charges, but has not been charged in the shooting. Deputies say they are still investigating Washington’s death.
