Investigators with the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department and Lexington County Coroner’s Office are seeking citizens’ help in identifying the person or perso...ns who shot and killed a 21-year-old man on September 24, 2009 at his home on Goodwin Road near Gaston.
Lexington County Sheriff Lewis McCarty said detectives have identified persons of interest in connection with the fatal shooting of Andrew Phillip Powell, 21, of 225 Goodwin Road, Gaston. It appears that the shooting was not a random act.
Detectives are continuing to investigate the motive and circumstances in the fatal shooting of Powell, McCarty said. Detectives also are continuing to seek evidence that would enable them to establish probable cause to obtain arrest warrants in connection with the shooting.
At 4:26 a.m. on September 25, 2009, deputies arrived at Powell’s home after Powell’s stepfather, Billy Mack Powell, called the Lexington County Communications Center and reported that he had arrived home at about 4 a.m. and found that Andrew Powell was not breathing and might be dead, McCarty said. Deputies found Andrew Powell lying on his back in the corner of the home’s living room. Andrew Powell was deceased.
McCarty asked anyone with information about Andrew Powell or Andrew Powell’s death to contact the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department at (803) 785-8230 or CrimeStoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
