Deputies investigating deadly shooting in Three Fountains area

Three Fountains, SC - 01/31/2021 (Paul Kirby) – Detectives with the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department are investigating a deadly shooting that happened at a business in the 3900 block of Platt Springs Road early Sunday morning. This is in the Three Fountains area of Lexington County close to the Columbia Metropolitan Airport.

Captain Adam Myrick, spokesman for the department, said early Sunday that based on the interviews they've done so far, the shooting stemmed from an argument between two men who worked together at a business. The two men were arguing, then fighting and a third person fired a shot that struck one of the men.

"We've identified a person of interest and our work on the case continues," Myrick said.
