Orangeburg County authorities are investigating a homicide that shut down a highway this morning.
Orangeburg County coroner Samuetta Marshall said the body of Antonio Jamison, 28, of Cordova, was left on Magnolia Drive, a stretch of U.S. 601, at Club 601. He was killed by multiple gunshot wounds, she said.
Witnesses said he was shot around 4 a.m.
Orangeburg County Sheriff's deputies closed the road in both directions for several hours this morning as part of their investigation.
