The Cayce Police Department has made significant progress in solving the gang-related December 11th homicide at Abbott Arms Apartments on Wilkinson Street. The incident, initially reported as a shooting, was determined to be a planned robbery for drugs and money, resulting in the tragic death of Travis Fuller (19).
The following four suspects have been arrested and are facing charges related to the incident:
- Joshua Sanchez, Age 18 – Charges: Murder, Attempted Armed Robbery, Conspiracy to Commit Armed Robbery, and Possession of a Weapon during a Violent Crime.
- Juvenile, Age 17 – Charges: Murder, Attempted Armed Robbery, and Conspiracy to Commit Armed Robbery.
- Idrees Xavier Scott, Age 24 – Charges: Conspiracy to Commit Armed Robbery and Accessory to Murder After the Fact.
- Jasmine Kiara Golson, Age 24 – Charges: Conspiracy to Commit Armed Robbery and Accessory to Murder After the Fact.
The investigation revealed a complex series of events that unfolded on the night of December 11th. Witnesses reported an argument in the Abbott Arms parking lot, followed by shots fired, and a dark-colored vehicle fleeing the scene at high speed. Numerous shell casings were found in the parking lot.
Travis Fuller, the gunshot victim, was rushed to Lexington Medical Center, where he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased. Another 15-year-old juvenile, who was in the car at the time of the shooting, drove Fuller to the hospital. A second male juvenile gunshot victim, connected to the planned robbery, was also later identified and hospitalized.
Cayce Police Department’s investigative efforts included the examination of evidence found in a blue Chevrolet Camaro associated with the crime. A 9mm handgun, shell casings, and narcotics were discovered inside the vehicle. Subsequent interviews, search warrants, and leads led to the identification and apprehension of the suspects.
The proactive work of the Patrol Division resulted in the additional arrests of three suspects (London Spires, 19; Davion Carson, 19, and a 17-year-old Juvenile) on charges of Possession with Intent to Distribute Narcotics and Unlawful Carry of a Firearm.
The Cayce Police Department acknowledges the collaboration and assistance received from the Lexington County Sheriff Department, Richland County Sheriff Department, United States Marshals Service, and the 11th Judicial Circuit Solicitor’s Office in making these arrests. The investigation is ongoing, with efforts focused on establishing links between the December 11th homicide and a shooting on November 25th on Lucas Street in Cayce.
Residents with additional information related to either of these two incidents are urged to contact the Cayce Police Department at 803-794-0456 or 888-CRIMESC to aid investigators in closing these cases. The community’s cooperation is crucial in ensuring justice is served for the victims and their families.
