AIKEN -- Preliminary findings on the Monday shooting death of John H. Anthony, 57, of Aiken County, revealed he died of multiple gunshot wounds, according to a statement released this afternoon.

Aiken Coroner Tim Carlton said Mr. Anthony sustained injuries to his upper and lower torso along with a severe head wound. The case appears to be a homicide, the coroner said.

Police said Mr. Anthony was fatally shot Monday while sitting on a front porch of a home on T&S Drive.

The Aiken County Sheriff's Office said this morning it is looking for Bradley Danley, 19, of Dallas Circle in Aiken, in connection with the fatal shooting.
