A South Carolina jury convicted a defendant who shot a Snapchat video of his victim before murdering him over a $200 debt, prosecutors said.
On Feb. 9, a judge in Horry County sentenced Sebastian Kaisk, 21, to 43 years in prison without the possibility of parole for the shooting death of 32-year-old Tyler H. Schaeffer on July 14, 2019. Kaisk received an additional five years behind bars, to be served consecutively, for possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.
On July 14, 2019, Kaisk tracked down Schaeffer, who allegedly owed him money, outside the Bi-Lo grocery store in North Myrtle Beach and forced him at gunpoint to a road near the victim’s home.
Kaisk filmed Schaeffer on Snapchat as he sat on the ground and begged to speak with his children.

The assailant responds, “No, man. I feel sorry for your kids though” before adding, “Say whatever you want for heaven . . . or hell, whatever way you go to.”
Minutes later, according to prosecutors, Kaisk fatally shot Schaeffer in the torso and head.
“This was a malicious killing by the defendant. He sought out Mr. Schaeffer who was unarmed and killed him over $200,” assistant solicitor Seth Oskin said.“There is no doubt to the defendant’s guilt in this matter.”
