A 63-year-old Columbia man was found shot to death near a storage facility on Two Notch Road early Saturday morning.
The man, identified by Richland County coroner Gary Watts as Gerald McDaniels, last known to reside on Ranchero Drive, died of multiple gunshot wounds at the U-Stor self-storage facility at 3415 Two Notch Road, said Richland County Sheriff's spokeswoman Monique Mack.
Few details were available Saturday. Deputies learned of the shooting from a 911 call of shots fired, Mack said.
One family member of the victim was located, who said McDaniels went by the nickname "Apple Jack."
Investigators are interested in speaking to any other family or acquaintances of McDaniels for leads in the shooting, Mack said.
