2 sought in death of elderly man in Gaston

Sep 22, 2011 7:31:00 PM - thestate.com
Lexington County authorities are looking for the two masked men who shot and killed an elderly man Wednesday night as he answered a knock on the door where he was staying in Gaston.

Leon W. Justice, 64, rented a bedroom in Rose Lucas’s Victor Road home. Lucas told police that she was in the kitchen around 10:30 p.m. when she heard a knock on the front door. She said she saw a flash and heard a gunshot after the two men confronted Justice when he opened the door.

Lucas’s son said he saw two men dart across his mother’s front yard and jump into a dark truck, possibly a Chevy. The truck made a loud noise through the exhaust system as it drove off, Daniel Lucas, who lives at a different address on Victor Road, told investigators.

Authorities don’t know if Justice knew his assailants but are investigating leads into the identities of the two men and others who may have been involved in the shooting, the sheriff’s department said.

Lexington County Sheriff James Metts asked anyone with information to contact the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department at (803) 785-8230 or CrimeStoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
