The Orange County Sheriff’s Office is asking for help in solving the murder of Terrance Givens, an Evans High School student who was shot to death at a birthday party being given in his honor last Saturday. He would have turned 17 the following Monday, October 24.
Deputies responded to a call of shots being fired around 10:25 PM at the Givens residence on Kingsland Avenue, just blocks away from Evans High school. Some 50 or 60 family members and friends were outside the house enjoying the party when someone opened fire on the group. Givens, who was standing on the front porch, was hit, as was an 18-year-old woman, who was shot in the ankle. Both were transported to ORMC, where the woman was treated and released. Givens died late the following day.
