ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Anderson Police are looking for the person who shot and killed a teen Wednesday night, making this the first homicide investigation of the year in the city.

Police were called to the intersection of Kennedy and Hampton streets at 9:13 p.m.

According to an incident report, when officers arrived they found a man, identified as 19-year-old Redmond "Redd" Donald, lying on his back on the sidewalk, bleeding.

Donald's father said Redd was a quiet guy, who had last attended T.L. Hanna High School in 2009, and loved to play basketball.

Witnesses told FOX Carolina that about seven shots were fired before a car sped away from the scene. They said Donald then collapsed in the street.

Family members say Redd appeared to have been shot further down Hampton Street, but collapsed just before reaching his grandmother's house.

Anderson County Coroner Don McCown said Donald died of a gunshot wound about 9:15 p.m.

The police department's gang unit was investigating the shooting, police said.

Anderson police updated neighbors at a community watch meeting Thursday night, but said, they still have no suspects, and investigations into the how and why, are in early stages.

Police say any bit of information anyone can give would help their investigations. Tips can be given anonymously by calling 888- CRIME-SC.
