UPDATE: One dead after Sunday morning shooting, suspect being questioned

Gaston, SC 06/27/2021 - A man who is being described as the suspect in a shooting early Sunday is now in custody of deputies on an unrelated charge. This is according to Captain Adam Myrick, spokesman for Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon. Myrick said that the man is being interviewed by Lexington County deputies who are actively investigating a fatal shooting in the 800 block of Meadowfield Road.

Earlier in the day, Myrick said deputies found a man shot to death at a home Sunday morning. Investigators are still searching for the gunman.

“We have no reason to believe this was a random act,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Based on the information we’ve gathered at the scene, the victim likely had some sort of association with the shooter. They knew each other on some level or had some type of connection.”

“Crime scene investigators are at the home collecting potential evidence,” Koon said. “Detectives are talking to neighbors and witnesses to piece together the sequence of events that led up to the shooting and see if any of that can help us find the shooter.”

Anyone with information about the shooting can share tips anonymously through the Crimestoppers app or by calling 888-274-6372.
