Greenwood County investigators are on the hunt for a husband and wife thought to have been involved in a deadly shooting earlier this month in north Greenwood, according to a news release issued by investigators late Tuesday morning.
The Greenwood Violent Crimes Task Force is seeking information on the whereabouts of two suspects in the incident. Investigators obtained an arrest warrant of murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime for 35-year-old Daniel Shane Allen. Authorities also have an accessory after the fact of murder warrant for Megan Allen, 20, of Greenwood.
The warrants stem from a late-night shooting Oct. 11 at 1611 E. Laurel Ave., during which 42-year-old widower Lonnie Terry Cogdill was gunned down. Investigators responded to the residence and found Cogdill dead inside his home with a gunshot wound to the chest. Greenwood County Coroner Sonny Cox confirmed the victim died from a single gunshot.
Greenwood County officers arrested Daniel Allen's father and brother early Tuesday morning in connection with the shooting. Danny Dee Allen, 57, and Parker Allen, 28, both of 108 Jebosha Drive, Greenwood, were each charged with a count of accessory after the fact to a felony. Investigators said the two men were providing the wanted suspects with money to help them evade law enforcement.
Officials noted the two suspects being sought are married and think they are together. Indications are that the couple have been on the lam for nearly two weeks as VCTF detectives have sought to question at least one of them since the night of the shooting. Officials are asking anyone with information that could lead to either suspect's capture to contact investigator Bryan Louis at 942-8041, or call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
