Suspect in Sumter killing turns himself in


A 22-year-old Sumter man has turned himself in to police in connection with a killing on Sunday afternoon, officials said.

Kentwon Savon Thames-Daniels, of Meadowbrook Road, turned himself in to the Sumter Law Enforcement Center today, according to a news release from the Sumter Police Department.

Police were able to identify Thames-Daniels as the suspect in the shooting after David Green Bratton was found shot after 2 p.m. Sunday in the 1100 block of Flamingo Road and later died at Palmetto Health Tuomey.

Bratton, 39, whose last known address was on Silver Street, and Thames-Daniels were seen arguing before police responded to the shooting call, according to the release.

Thames-Daniels is charged with murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime. He is being held at Sumter-Lee Regional Detention Center.

An investigation is continuing.
