AIKEN - An Aiken County man was fatally shot this afternoon as he sat on a front porch in a mobile home park.

Several shots were at the T&S Mobile Home Park near Reynolds Pond Road, said sheriff’s Capt. Troy Elwell. He said that at least five people were in the home that was fired on but that no one else was injured.

Officers say they’re looking for a person or persons believed to have been driving a blue Chevrolet Tahoe with chrome rims.

More Drug violence, why

More Drug violence, why doesn't the government go take out the drug cartels? The CIA knows who the leaders are, just blast their mansions and send them running. The drug cartels are killing more, inadvertently, than the terrorist could dream.
