Halloween night shooting victim’s family demands justice, suspects at large


Greenville County investigators are searching for the person(s) responsible for a deadly shooting on Halloween night. 

“Took my soul away… took my soul away,” said Shieshia Sims. 

That’s how Shieshia Sims describes the pain of losing her family member Tyree Lamar Blue. Sims tells 7News Blue was more than just her cousin. 

“He’s more like a brother than anything,” she said. “Even though he’s my very first baby cousin. He’s more like a brother.” 

Blue was killed in a shooting on Wednesday night. 

“I wish I would have never gotten that phone call, but I did and it was hard.” Sims said. 

Greenville County investigators say around 11:30 Halloween night two cars pulled up next to each other on White Horse Road near Highway 123. Deputies say after a period of time had passed shots were fired. 

Once on scene, investigators found one person shot inside a car parked in the middle of the road. 

Blue was taken to the hospital, but later died from a gunshot wound to the head. 

Deputies say two other people showed up at the hospital with non-life threatening injuries from the shooting. 

Sims says she held her cousin’s hand in his last moments. 

“It was bad news,” Sims told 7News. “Worst day ever.” 

Investigators have yet to determine a motive, but believe the people involved in the shooting knew each other. 

Sims tells 7News her family just wants closure that they can only find by learning the truth. She says they owe it to the 3-year-old daughter Blue left behind.

“So we can sleep, knowing that he’s okay.” Sims said. “If y’all could just come forward, let us know what’s going on. Don’t leave us in the blind… don’t leave us wondering what happened to him.” 

Investigators haven’t identified any suspects. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers of Greenville at 864-23-Crime. 

Blue will be laid to rest on Saturday, November 10th.
