GASTON Officials at the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department are hoping the public can help solve a 2009 fatal shooting in Gaston.
Anderw Phillip Powell, 21, of 225 Goodwin Road was shot and killed Sept. 24, 2009, at his home. Sheriff James Metts said detectives have identified persons of interest and that it was not a random act, according to a news release.
Detectives are seeking evidence that would establish probably cause in order to obtain arrest warrants.
