RIDGEVILLE, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say a 64-year-old Ridgeville man was found dead near his home after being shot in the eye.
Dorchester County Coroner Christopher Nisbet says Jimmy Edwards' body was discovered by family members who went looking for him.
Investigators say Edwards was talking to his family on the phone around 10:30 p.m. Friday and told them he was on his way home. A short time later, the relatives heard two gunshots.
Nisbet says it appears Edwards was shot once in the eye, but he has scheduled an autopsy for Sunday.
Dorchester County deputies are investigating the killing.
