LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

Lexington County Sheriff's investigators have released the composite sketch of a man who they say fatally shot a 31-year-old man who attempted to break up a fight outside a bar on Berryhill Road.

A witness at the scene provided SLED with a description that helped law enforcement officials come up with the sketch of the suspect.

That witness described the suspect as a black male between 22 and 28 who is 5'6" tall and weighed about 140 pounds. The suspect was last seen with shoulder-length dreadlocks, gold bottom teeth, and wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans.

The circumstances surrounding the shooting remain under investigation, but Sheriff James Metts says Brandon E. Ratliff was killed outside the Cockpit Bar and Grill early in the morning of Feb. 2.

If you have any information about this case, please call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
