Man shot to death at a home in Lexington County

Lexington County deputies are investigating a fatal shooting in the 800 block of Meadowfield Road.

Deputies said they 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.”

As investigators work to locate the gunman, they don’t believe he’s a threat to the community, according to Koon.

“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.”
