Cayce, SC (Paul Kirby) – On Sunday afternoon, Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher identified the victim of a fatal shooting that took place in the early morning hours of Sunday, December 17, 2017. The homicide happened at the City Nightzbar in the 2100 block of Old Dunbar Road just outside the city of Cayce.
According to Coroner Fisher, Mr. Rodney T. Leak, 41, of Columbia was pronounced dead at the scene due to a gunshot wound he sustained at the club there on Old Dunbar. The shooting apparently happened at about 2:20 a.m., shortly after the nightclub had closed for that night.
