COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Richland County deputies say they have "strong leads" on the suspect in a deadly shooting Saturday in Columbia.

Sheriff's department spokesperson Monique Mack said the killing happened on Baccharis Drive, which is near Farrow Road.

Mack said two men got into an argument, which escalated until one of the men pulled out a gun and shot the other man, who died shortly thereafter.

Deputies don't yet have a suspect in custody, but Mack said investigators have strong leads on who they are looking for.

Mack said deputies don't know what started the fight, or if the two men knew each other.
