      Deputies investigating shooting death in Florence

      Florence County Sheriff's Office is investigating an apparent homicide at a home on Aline Street in East Florence.

      A man was shot to death inside a home, according to Captain Michael Nunn.

      Florence County Coroner Keith von Lutcken says the man who died is David Lionel Jenkins, 48, of Timmonsville.

      He says the body will be sent to Charleston Wednesday for an autopsy.

      Nunn says neighbors heard a gunshot, then saw two men drive away from the home in an older model black Chevrolet pickup.

      Jenkins was the father of 17-year old-Jeremiah Jenkins who was killed by gang members in August 2008, according to von Lutcken.

      Jenkins body was found inside a wall of a vacant warehouse in Florence 24 days after he was killed.
