FLORENCE, S.C. (WBTW) — Florence police are investigating after a deadly shooting Wednesday afternoon, authorities said.
It happened at about 1:30 p.m. in the 1100 block of Maxwell Street, according to Police Capt. Mike Brandt. The person was found dead inside of a house.
The body was made by a relative, according to Florence County Coroner Keith von Lutcken, who identified the victim as 28-year-old Derris Lashawn Brown, of Kingstree.
Lutcken said Brown had been shot multiple times.
There is a history of violent crime in the area.
One person was taken to the hospital on July 12 after a shooting in the same area. That person was expected to survive, Brandt said.
Florence police also investigated another shooting on Maxwell Street in January in which two people went to the emergency room. Several vehicles and a vacant home were also damaged in that incident, police said.
Last August, a man was shot and hospitalized while driving a vehicle near Oakland Avenue and Maxwell Street, according to police.
