A Chester man died after a shooting Wednesday night.
Faris Terrell Wray, 24, died after the shooting, which happened around 9 p.m. on Railroad Avenue in Chester County, according to a press release issued by Sheriff Richard Smith.
This is the first homicide in Chester County this year, Smith said.
When officers arrived, they found Wray on his stomach and it was apparent that he had been shot several times.
Never miss a local story.
Railroad Avenue is off Saluda Road, near Chester.
Wray was flown to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, but died on the way to the hospital.
He was pronounced dead at CMC.
Witnesses told deputies the shooter was wearing a white T-shirt and possibly a blue hat.
After the shooting, the suspect ran down York Road toward Chester.
He was seen being picked up in a dark-colored vehicle.
Wray's mother, Patricia Evans, said she doesn't know why anyone would want to shoot her son.
She said she last talked to her son Wednesday afternoon.
"He liked to fix radios, fix cars, fix go-karts. Anything you want him to fix on, he would," Evans said. "He had an old car in the yard. He got it running. He called and said he put a sale sign on the car in the yard and two people came by wanting to buy it."
Talking about those offers was the last conversation she said she had with her son.
"I want people to know I had a good son," Evans said.
"He may have done a little bit of wrong, but he was a good child."
Wray had convictions for misdemeanor infractions including public disorderly conduct and driving under the influence.
