ORANGEBURG COUNTY, S.C. (WCBD) – Sheriff Leroy Ravenell announced investigators have obtained warrants for a Santee man believed to have shot and killed a man during an argument Thursday.

The sheriff said Orangeburg County Sheriff’s investigators are seeking 35-year-old Rashon Tyreek Asbery on a charge of murder.

“If anyone knows where Mr. Asbery is, please call us immediately,” Ravenell said. “This person is to be considered dangerous.”

Investigators were called to a Forestry Road location just before 10 a.m. where a deceased male with what appeared to be a gunshot wound to the upper body was found beside the road.

An autopsy is being scheduled, according to Sheriff Ravenell.

Investigators discovered that Asbery and the victim had been in some type of argument earlier Thursday.

More details will be released as they become available.

If anyone has any information on Asbery’s location, they are urged to call the OCSO at 803-534-3550 or Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
