SUMMERVILLE, SC -

Three people have now been charged in connection with the shooting death of a Goose Creek woman at the Moonshine Saloon in Goose Creek.

According to Berkeley County Coroner Bill Salisbury, 32-year-old April Infinger was hit in the back by a bullet at around 1:00 Sunday morning.

Infinger, a mother and wife, was transported to a local hospital where she later died.

The Berkeley County Sheriff's office said 33-year-old Shearon Lamar Bennett has been charged with murder and  45-year-old Darrell Bennett and 41-year-old April Cartin are charged with obstruction of justice and accused of hindering the investigation. Authorities said the Bennetts are brothers.

All three are from the Berkeley County community of Cross and all are in jail. It was not immediately clear if they had attorneys.

Scott Bates said he was shocked when he received a text message saying his friend had been killed. He runs the Lowcountry chapter of the American Poolplayers Association.

Infinger had been part of the group since 2004, playing pool at the Moonshine Saloon Wednesday and Thursday nights.

"She's always seemed to love pool," Bates said. "Her husband plays pool. It's kind of like a family thing for her to do."

Bates said Infinger was out enjoying a birthday party for a friend when a fight broke out.

"Some people around her got into some argument, and she happened to be punished for other people's mistakes," Bates said.

Bates said his entire pool association is mourning the loss of a friend and teammate who was known for her fiery, friendly personality.

"I never heard anyone say anything bad about her," Bates said. "She's one of those people who's a little feisty. She really enjoyed [the game of pool]. It was just fun for her."
