HARTSVILLE, S.C. (AP) — A college student from Maryland has died from wounds suffered in a shooting at a South Carolina bar over the weekend that killed two others and injured three more, according to a county coroner’s office.

Garrett Bakhsh, of Hampstead, Maryland, was among those shot around 2 a.m. Sunday at Mac’s Lounge in Hartsville, South Carolina, Darlington County Coroner Todd Hardee's office told news outlets. The 18-year-old died from his wounds, the office confirmed Wednesday.

Bakhsh was a freshman attending Hartsville's Coker University, where he was majoring in criminal justice, according to The Baltimore Sun, citing a student athlete profile on the university website.

Dicaprio Collins, 21, and Bryan Robinson, 29, were also killed, authorities confirmed. Police haven't commented on what led to the shooting.

On Monday, police charged suspect Darius Grant Dickey with four counts of attempted murder and five other charges related to the shooting, city spokeswoman Lauren Baker said in a statement. A second suspect is in custody, but that person's name will not be released until police serve additional arrest warrants, Baker said at the time.

The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division and the U.S. Marshals Service were assisting Hartsville police with the investigation.

Hartsville is about 25 miles (40 kilometers) northwest of Florence, South Carolina, and about 40 miles (64 kilometers) south of the North Carolina state line.
