CHARLESTON COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - The Charleston County Sheriff’s Office is hoping someone will come forward with information that will finally solve a 12-year-old cold case killing.

Rasha Porter was 27 years old when he was shot to death at approximately 12:30 a.m. on Nov. 15, 2010, after someone entered his Branton Road mobile home in Ravenel, deputies say.

After Porter told a fellow resident of the home to get a gun under the bed for self-defense, the intruder shot Porter once, according to investigators.
