Lexington County deputies investigating early morning homicide near Cayce

LEXINGTON, S.C. -- Lexington County deputies are investigating an early morning homicide in the 2000 block of Old Dunbar Road near the city of Cayce.

Shots were fired inside City Nightz bar shortly after the establishment’s 2 a.m. closing time, according to investigators.

“We don’t know how many men went inside the bar or what they were doing there after closing time,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Based on the evidence we’ve collected, we know gunshots were exchanged and someone who was still inside the bar was shot to death.”

Cayce Public Safety officers responded and were first on the scene as mutual aid to the county. They were dispatched at 2:20 a.m. Deputies quickly arrived and EMS personnel and firefighters were dispatched from South Congaree. The medical personnel were released as soon as it was discovered that the victim was already dead.

No arrests have been made, according to Koon. If anyone has any information on what might have taken place, please call Crimestoppers at 888-CRIME-SC.
