Authorities say a 19-year-old man has turned himself in on charges he killed a woman shot while in a car on a South Carolina highway.

Chesterfield County deputies said Ryu Deshawn Hough was out on bond for a weapons charge three months ago when he was charged with murder after Wednesday night's shooting.

Authorities said 18-year-old Amber Horton was a front seat passenger in a car on state Highway 151 near Pageland when Hough started following her car, then pulled up beside it and fired several shots.

Investigators told news outlets Horton was hit in the chest and killed.

Deputies have not released a motive for the shooting.
