LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

According to the Lexington County Sheriff's Department, the shooting took place around 4:30 p.m. at the 5300 block of Bush River Road at River Oaks Apartments.

Doyle was taken to Lexington Medical Center where he later died.

“Detectives worked very hard on this case for two years,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said in a statement. “Providing some sense of closure to Mr. Doyle’s family exactly two years after the incident is especially meaningful to everyone who responded to and investigated this case.”

Mickens is being held in the Lexington County Detention Center while he awaits a sentencing hearing on federal weapons charges scheduled for Sept. 11.
