On March 8, 2015, a rap concert was held at Sonny’s Bar & Grill in Seneca, SC. A rapper from Greenwood was performing when a fight broke out.  The defendant went to his vehicle and returned to the front of the club with a firearm. He then brandished the firearm, displayed gang signs and fired multiple times into the crowd. One shot struck Anthony Holden in the abdomen, who subsequently died. Felisha Campbell (no relation to the defendant) was also struck and required hospitalization. The shooting was recorded on video at the scene. Campbell left his cellphone at the scene.
