Aiken County authorities are investigating a homicide after a Beech Island man was fatally shot Monday.

Isiah D. Miles, 35, was pronounced dead at Georgia Regents Medical Center after he sustained multiple gunshot wounds, Coroner Tim Carlton said.

An autopsy will be performed in Newberry, S.C., on Tuesday.

About 6:53 p.m., Aiken County deputies were called to the 200 block of Green Road, in the Petticoat Junction area of Aiken County, to investigate a report of gunshots in the area, according to a statement from the sheriff’s office. When deputies arrived on scene, they found Miles suffering from gunshot wounds.

Aiken County sheriff’s Capt. Eric Abdullah said late Monday that no suspects have been identified.

Anyone with information can call the sheriff’s office at (803) 648-6811 or the Midlands Crimestoppers at (888) 274-6372.

Sorry to hear about this

Sorry to hear about this tragedy but this is not about you or your side of the river countyman. Aiken co. will do just fine without your comments.

My thoughts exactly!
On my last trip thru Petticoat junction I saw no subsidized housing.
In last election Hunt won handily. I would suppose he has support of the vast majority of voters in Aiken County.

They are right countyman.

They are right countyman. Just because there is a shooting does not mean there is Section 8. However, wherever there is Section 8 there are always shootings, break-ins, burglaries, and robberies that radiate from that area. There are valid reasons why people display disdain and scorn for Section 8 properties near them. There are valid reasons why people get upset when the relocation of Section 8 people from one area to another in the name of "redevelopment" becomes official policy of the local government. Government focuses on bragging about redevelopment and fails to talk about the associated destruction of former stable neighborhoods.

Redevelopment is just another game that is played by politicians, crusaders, and wealthy people who use taxpayer money to relocate undesirables and improve property values in certain areas at the expense of property values and quality of life in other areas.

CSRA

Please don't take the comment seriously, because I'm a huge supported of the entire CSRA.. My comment was meant to be sarcastic and they weren't my true feelings..

The citizens of Richmond County are tired of hearing the same comments everyday and then people become mute about the surrounding counties.. Many Aiken County(less than CC residents) residents bring up section 8, welfare, etc no matter the crime or area in Richmond County.

"The citizens of Richmond

"The citizens of Richmond County are tired of hearing the same comments everyday and then people become mute about the surrounding counties"

Then maybe those citizens should do something about making Richmond County a better place to live! When there is a poverty rate of 23%, something is drastically WRONG, and no municipality can be successful with those kinds of demographics.

However, I don't much care what you are tired of hearing, Countyman.

Richmond County is full of Section 8 housing, and it does nothing but pull it all down.

Section 8 destroys neighborhoods faster than anything. People work hard all their lives to buy and maintain a home, and then Section 8 comes in, and everything they work for just disappears into thin air.

Mr. Miles soul. The area he was slain in is predominantly "Afro-American" if I'm not mistaken. I think the punk in the White House and the naacp need to put this atop their agenda instead of "raping" the white man for all of his/her money to pay for all of the Afro community's incivilities. Just my humble opinion. Do you feel my pain, "bro"?

This followed the HUD and

This followed the HUD and Section 8 integration into our neighborhood: Things working people earn disappear to the metal recyclers, or pawn shops or stolen bicycles are re-worked into another unrecognizable bike for use drug-trafficking, or they come back with the yard tools they stole and brazenly or stupidly, not sure which, ask you to pay them to do yard work for them, you go to a neighborhood meeting to report the problems and you come back to see a beat up old white van leaving from between your neighbor's house and your house's front curb and you pull into your darkly shaded carport and find out the van was leaving with everything you had been unpacking from your move from the other declining neighborhood, including the brand new lawn mower you had just borrowed from a relative that morning to mow your front yard, despite the fact that it was covered up with a tarp! That's just a sampling. Corgimom is right about that. Most, but not all, the section 8 houses were housing transients, criminals and/or juvenile delinquents. I wish it wasn't so, but the police reports sure seemed to reflect that.
