West Columbia police are investigating the death of an unidentified man shot by a homeowner Monday.

The victim died while riding a bicycle away from the residence, the homeowner told police.

The shooting occurred about 3:15 a.m. in the 2000 block of Morningside Drive on the west edge of the Lexington County city, police said.

The homeowner told police he fired two shots at the victim after seeing the man break into a truck parked at the rear of the residence.

Authorities pronounced the victim — who had no identification — dead at the scene. He is described as white, in his mid-40s, 5’6” tall and 160 pounds.
