Tuesday, August 28, 2012

SUMTER, SC - Sumter County deputies are searching for the person who shot and killed a 25-year-old man late Sunday.

Deputies were called to the Oakland Plantation Apartments at 5501 Edgehill Road a little after 11 p.m. after neighbors reported hearing several gunshots.

When they arrived, they found a white male lying on the ground near a dumpster. Investigators said he had been shot at least three times.

The victim was identified as Kyle Brandon Eppling. He was taken by EMS to Tuomey Regional Medical Center where he passed away.

Witnesses reported seeing a black male dressed in dark clothing leaving the scene. He was wearing a black scarf and something was covering his face.

He got into a vehicle on Edgehill Road and sped away, witnesses said.
