A Ridgeland man died after he was shot Sunday afternoon during a gunfight with another man in Pineland, according to a Jasper County Sheriff's Office news release.
Adrian Javon Holmes, 20, was allegedly fighting with a man in the Gillison Branch Road area, the release said. Holmes left, returned with a handgun and began shooting at the man, the release said.
The suspect then retrieved a handgun and returned fire.
Deputies responded at 12:37 p.m. SLED investigators also responded and identified a suspect through witness interviews, the release said. That suspect was contacted by a SLED agent and agreed to turn himself in. SLED is withholding the suspect's name as it investigates the incident, the release said.
Holmes sustained multiple gunshot wounds and was taken to Hampton Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
