Authorities are investigating the fatal shooting of a Holly Hill man.

The Orangeburg County Coroner’s Office said that Richard Davis Jr. , 39, of Surfside Drive died as a result of a gunshot wound to the head.

“A neighbor called law enforcement just before midnight after he located the male victim lying on the ground," Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said in a release.

"When officers and emergency personnel arrived, they observed the male having been shot multiple times. Our investigation indicates two gunshots were heard just before an unknown vehicle sped off," he said.

Ravenell said officers worked overnight to develop suspects in the shooting.

"We believe this was not a random act of violence because of evidence located in the victim’s home," he said.

An incident report on the matter was not released Tuesday.
