Sumter County Sheriff's Office continues its search for 21-year-old D'Aundree Dy'Quan Wilson, who is wanted in connection with the nonfatal Christmas Day shooting at the El Cheapo on U.S. 378.

Wilson is 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighs 120 pounds and has black hair and brown eyes.

He is thought to be in the Columbia area but has family in Sumter County, said Deputy Ken Bell, public information officer with the sheriff's office.

During the first appearance hearing for Wilson's co-defendant, 17-year-old Faquanta Benjamin, Sgt. Wayne DuBose with the sheriff's office said it appears the two suspects walked into the convenience store at 4756 Broad St. and had a verbal altercation with another customer.

Wilson is accused of shooting the victim, 20, in the lower body when the altercation escalated outside, before he and Benjamin fled the area.

Bell said the victim is in non-life-threatening but serious condition and could have severe nerve damage to one of his legs according to comments from the victim's sister.

Benjamin is charged with attempted murder.

Wilson has outstanding warrants for attempted murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

If seen, law enforcement warns not to approach Wilson but to call 911, Sumter County Sheriff's Office at (803) 436-2000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-CRIME SC.

Callers can remain anonymous and could get a cash reward for information that assists in the investigation.
