DILLON, SC (WMBF) – The Dillon County coroner confirmed that one person is dead in the city of Dillon, and police are currently investigating the crime scene.

Coroner Donnie Grimsley confirmed around 6:15 p.m., Wednesday the incident is now being investigated as a shooting. The body of the male victim was found inside a small building behind a home in the 200 block of South Fourth Avenue in the city of Dillon. 

The victim was identified by police Thursday as Brandon A. Hargrove, of Dillon. He was shot multiple times and found dead at the Fourth Avenue residence.

Dillon police said the investigation began after receiving a call around 1:11 p.m., Wednesday. The State Law Enforcement Department was contacted to process the crime scene and investigators left just before 7 p.m. The Dillon County Sheriff's Office and SC Probation Parole are assisting in the investigation.

Monchal Gurley, who owns the house where the body was found, said she pulled up from work to her home to find it had been turned into a crime scene. Her emotions, she added, were "sympathy, grief, anger." 

“That’s the very question, 'Why?'" she said. "You work hard and you have to come home to this.”

Gurley added that she knew the victim, along with many others in the community, because he was very well known. His friends said he died too young.

Police say they have several leads and have conducting numerous interviews. Anyone with information that may assist in the murder investigation is asked to contact Dillon Police.
