Possible dispute leads to deadly shooting in Orangeburg County, authorities say

ORANGEBURG COUNTY, S.C. (WCBD) — The Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office is investigating following a deadly shooting Tuesday.

According to Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell, just after 12 p.m on September 27, investigators were called to a home on Lawton Street where a man was found to be suffering from a gunshot wound.

Witnesses said a white SUV drove in front of the victim’s car before two men inside the SUV began firing weapons at the victim, according to a news release.

Medics transported the victim to an area hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

“The case is being aggressively investigated at this moment,” Ravenell said. There may have been a dispute involving a woman the previous night, witnesses added.

An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday.
