CLEARWATER, S.C. (WJBF) – A suspect is still at large in a deadly home invasion on Friday.

Two Aiken County teens Undraize Antonio Dixon,17, and Deonte Raequan Schultz,17, are charged with murder, armed robbery and first degree burglary in connection with the shooting that occurred at a home in Clearwater.

Aiken County Investigators are still looking for one more person. He is described as a 5-foot 8 inches black male with black hair. Deputies say he was last seen wearing a black hoodie, black pants and dark shoes.

The victim has been identified as 15-year-old Jordan Shores. The teenager regularly attended youth at Woodridge Baptist Church in Clearwater, S.C.

People that WBJF NewsChannel 6 spoke with say Jordan Shores attended to youth every Wednesday evening and he loved basketball. Now this church is finding comfort in faith, and looking to each other to help his family move forward.

“What is one thing that you would say to his family right now?” Asked WBJF NewsChannel 6’s Stefany Bornman.

“My heart hurts. It hurts for them,” said Champayne Webb.

Webb has watched her children grow up at Woodridge Baptist Church, alongside Jordan Shores.

Shores was killed at this home on Fairview Road Friday.

According to another victim in the house at the time, 3 armed men wearing masks entered through the front door. One of the suspects fired his weapon, while another struck one of the victims with his gun.

Aiken County Investigators say the suspects took off in a red sedan and dodged a traffic stop. That’s when deputies started chasing the car.

On Friday two of the suspects were caught.

“Does the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office believe to have a motive behind this? Do they know what the reason was?” Asked WBJF NewsChannel 6’s Stefany Bornman.

“Well there’s no way for me to speculate or even comment on motive,” said Captain Eric Abdullah.

Shores spent many afternoons practicing his basketball skills in the church recreational room, a passion of his that many of his friends will never forget.

“In fact that was one theme that was intertwined in everything with the youth sharing the other night,” said Tom Kalliokoski, pastor of Woodridge Baptist Church. “Was that he taught them some basketball moves that nobody else could.”

Still, as a mother Webb says nothing can prepare you to lay your child to rest.

“But we are all praying for them,” Webb told WJBF NewsChannel 6, “and I’m sorry that they would ever have to endure such pain.”

Since both suspects are 17-year-old, in South Carolina they can be tried as adults.

The Aiken County Sheriff’s Office says they are encouraging anyone with information on the third suspect to come forward.

If they would rather remain anonymous they can call the Crime Stoppers at 803-772-2456.

Webb started a GoFundMe page for Shores, to help his family give his the proper burial. If you would like to donate, please click here.
