Deputies seek tips on deadly shooting

Lexington, SC 04/29/2024 - Lexington County deputies are seeking the public’s help as they investigate a deadly shooting that happened early Sunday morning at a bar in Swansea.

“Deputies responded to a shots fired call at Amici Tavern at 3:20 Sunday morning and spent hours on the scene interviewing witnesses and reviewing security cam footage from a nearby business,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “We're on this investigation at the request of the Swansea Police Department and we don’t have very much to go on at this point. That’s why we’d like to hear from anyone who was at the bar last night or anyone who might have heard specifics about the shooting.”

Witnesses told investigators two men were arguing inside the bar before going outside, according to Koon.

“Based on what we’ve gathered, one man shot another man in the parking lot,” Koon said. “The shooter drove away in an unknown car while the victim was driven by friends down the road a short distance where they met EMS.”

Koon said tipsters can remain anonymous by using the Midlands Crimestoppers mobile app. Someone who shares information that leads to an arrest could be eligible for a cash reward, according to Koon.
