One dead after early morning bar shooting in Lexington County


Lexington County deputies are investigating a bar shooting that claimed the life of one person early Sunday morning.

It happened at the City Nightz bar on the 2000 block of Old Dunbar Road just after the bar’s closing time of 2 a.m.

Investigators say there were only a few people left in the bar when an unknown amount of people entered and gunshots were exchanged resulting in someone being shot to death.

“We don’t know how many men went inside the bar or what they were doing there after closing time,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said.

The Lexington County Coroner has not released the identity of the victim yet.

No arrests have been made yet. Deputies are urging anyone with any information on the shooting to contact Crimestoppers by calling 1-888-CRIME-SC (888-274-6372) or visiting and emailing a tip. Your identity will be kept anonymous, and if your tip leads to an arrest, you could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
