A man was found shot to death in a Richland County home early Saturday morning. Richland County authorities charged Kevin Robinson, 42, with murder, being a felon in possession of a firearm, and possession a weapon during a violent crime.
The victim was identified as Dameon Farrand, 37, of Columbia, Coroner Gary Watts said. His death was caused by a gunshot wound to the upper body.
Richland County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call of shots fired just after 1 a.m. in the 2000 block of Hertford Drive, a residential area not far from Columbia High School.
When deputies arrived, they found a man who had been shot in the upper body and was unresponsive. EMS workers soon arrived and pronounced the man dead, deputies say.
