BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

The Berkeley County coroner identified the man shot to death early Sunday morning in Berkeley County.

Liam Owen Vernon, 35, of Summerville, died in the incident in the Cane Bay neighborhood, according to Coroner Bill Salisbury.

At approximately 7:20 a.m., deputies with the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office responded to report of a shooting with a victim in the 100 block of Decatur Road, according to Berkeley County Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Mike Cochran.

Cochran said the homeowner called 911 to report he had shot someone in the home. 

Deputies said Vernon suffered several gunshot wounds while inside the home. EMS took Vernon to Trident Hospital in North Charleston where he later died, Cochran said. 

On Sunday, deputies reported the shooter was "in custody," but on Monday, Cochran said no arrests have been made.

"The relationship and histories of the parties involved is being examined in order to determine what led up to this shooting," Cochran said Monday. "The homeowner is currently cooperating with detectives through his attorney."
