Man shot and killed at home an hour before his birthday

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – Richland County deputies say they are looking for two suspects who shot and killed a 26-year-old man outside his house an hour before his birthday.

Investigators told media outlets that Jamell George had just returned to his Columbia home from work around 11 p.m. Saturday when two men came up and started arguing with him.

Deputies say George tried to run away after they fought, but he was shot several times in the upper body and died at the hospital just before he turned 27 years old.

Authorities have not released a motive for the shooting or identified any suspects.
