COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

The Richland County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a shooting that left one man dead in Columbia early Saturday morning.  

The Richland County Coroner has identified the man as 34-year-old Marcus Posey of Columbia. The coroner says an autopsy of Posey’s body indicated he died from a gunshot wound to the upper body.

According to Lt. Wilson with RCSD, at 3:30 am deputies responded to the 1100 block of Blue Ridge Terrace when they found an unresponsive man, later identified as Posey, on the side of the road.

Emergency services were called out to the scene and pronounced him dead.

Deputies say Posey was seen with two men the day before he died. Investigators are working to identify the men as they may have vital information in reference to Posey's death. Both men can be seen in the images attached to this story. The first man is a black male wearing a yellow shirt and a toboggan hat. The second is a black male wearing boots and is smoking a cigarette.
