Lexington County authorities say a man was found fatally shot at a Gaston-area home Wednesday after someone called 911 to report gunshots.

Late Wednesday, Lexington County coroner Margaret Fisher identified the dead man as 23-year-old Rodney Steven Isaac of unknown address. He died from what appeared to be a single gunshot wound. An autopsy will be performed Thursday to determine cause of death, Fisher said in a news release.

The Lexington County Sheriff’s Department was called to a home on the 3000 block of Princeton Road around 11:15 a.m., officials said.

The Sheriff’s Department is following leads on a possible suspect, a spokesperson said. Investigators believe the killing was not random, and that the victim knew his assailant.
