LAMAR, SC (WMBF) – A murder suspect has turned himself into Darlington County officials.

"Major DuBose turns himself in to DCSO. Waiting on GS Judge to set bond on murder charge, re: Cambridge Apts shooting," Darlington County Sheriff Wayne Byrd tweeted Tuesday.

The surrender comes five days after Dubose was named a suspect in the deadly shooting that happened in Lamar on July 3.

"Major D. Dubose III wanted for murder & criminal conspiracy in connection with last night's shooting in Lamar," Sheriff Wayne Byrd, with the Darlington County Sheriff's Office, tweeted early Friday, July 4.

Investigators responded to the scene of the deadly shooting early Thursday morning.

Jaquavius Deshod McLain, 24, of Lamar, was confirmed dead, according to Darlington County Coroner Todd Hardee. McLain was found dead in a vehicle near the Cambridge Apartments, shortly before midnight.

Another person was treated at a nearby hospital after the shooting at the apartments on Jackson Street, according to Sheriff Byrd.

McLain's death was ruled a homicide, Coroner Hardee stated. An autopsy was scheduled. Investigators have interviewed witnesses and continue to search for suspects.
