The Aiken County Coroner’s Office announced the death of the man severely injured during a shooting incident on Keith Drive in Warrenville earlier this week.

Travis Young, 39, of Trenton, was pronounced dead at Augusta University Medical Center around 7 p.m. Thursday, said Aiken County Coroner Tim Carlton.

Young was rushed to the hospital Wednesday morning after Aiken County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the 100 block of Keith Drive around 5:15 a.m. to find Young suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, Carlton said.

EMS took Young to Augusta University Medical Center, where he stayed until his death Thursday.

Investigators reported they are now working to gather more information on the shooting, which was initially reported as a possible drive-by shooting by witnesses.
