Lexington County man wanted on murder charge

LEXINGTON, S.C. – An arrest warrant for murder has been issued for a 22-year-old Swansea man suspected of fatally shooting a man Tuesday evening.

“Our detectives have determined Jeremy Antonio Williams is a suspect in the homicide on South Hampton Road,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “He should be considered armed and dangerous.”

Deputies responded to the 100 block of South Hampton Road near Red Bank about 5:15 p.m. yesterday and found a man who had suffered multiple gunshot wounds. The victim, identified by Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher as 35-year-old Derrick James Jones of Lexington, died while being transported to a hospital.

More charges are expected against Williams in connection with the South Hampton Road incident, according to Koon.
