LADSON, SC (WCSC) -

The Berkeley County coroner identified the victim in a fatal Tuesday night shooting in Ladson.

The body of Donald Timothy Lloyd, Jr., 27, was found by authorities lying in the roadway of Frank Jones Road off College Park Road, according to Berkeley County Coroner Bill Salisbury. The death is being investigated as a homicide, he said.

Berkeley County Sheriff Duane Lewis said when deputies arrived at the location they found a person suffering from a gunshot wound. 

Motorists had reported multiple law enforcement in the area of the fairgrounds early Tuesday night. 

Nearby residents said it was "scary" that something like this could be happening right around the corner from them. 

The Berkeley County Coroner's Office and the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office are investigating the death and Salisbury said additional information will be released after an autopsy.

Anyone with information should contact the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office at (843) 719-4465.
