When they arrived on-scene, they found a female victim who had been shot multiple times, and a male victim who had been shot once. Both victims were transported to the hospital.

The male victim, 35, was treated and released, but the female victim died Tuesday night despite several surgeries.

According to the coroner, the female victim was identified as Regina Ashley Allen, 32, of Inman.

The male shooting victim was Allen’s boyfriend.

Deputies said at the time of the initial release that the motive was unclear, but said investigators believed that the victims were targeted as opposed to this incident being random.

During a news conference Thursday, Wright said they are still working to find those responsible for the shooting.

“Somebody senselessly took her life,” Wright said. “I’m asking for anybody who has any knowledge about…maybe you have a Ring doorbell, that you have some information on, you don’t think there’s anything to it. Somebody driving, somebody running, I don’t know. Maybe you have a camera that’s picked up something that you think’s strange. Whatever it is we would like for you to call us, whatever it is.”

Beverley Allen, Regina Allen’s mother, spoke during the news conference, asking for the person or people responsible to come forward.

“I’m speaking to the killer or the killers: My prayer is that the Holy Spirit will not let you rest, will not let you sleep,” Beverley Allen said. “You’ll not be able to eat, and everyone who is connected to you, who knows something about this horrendous crime will not be able to eat, sleep or rest as well.”

“My prayer is that God will expose you quickly and apprehend you quickly so there will be no more violence. And my prayer is that you will experience the pain of a mother who has lost a child, or a father who lost a child, or a big brother. Regina was a person she loved life and she loved living, and she didn’t deserve to be killed in such a horrendous way,” she said.

Anyone with any information about this incident is urged to contact Inv. Megan Bennett at 864-503-4608 or email her at You can also call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
