On June 10, 2019, around 7:30 pm, Irmo officers were dispatched to a shooting incident at the corner of Fallsbury Road and Harleston Road in the New Friarsgate subdivision. Officers arrived and found a male subject shot. That subject was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher has identified the male subject as Brandon Keith Bishop of Irmo.
When officers arrived at the scene, they found a woman who they believe shot Bishop after being involved in a domestic dispute inside a vehicle. During that dispute, the female was assaulted, and her life was threatened. At some point, the female pulled a gun on Bishop and shot him while inside that vehicle. The female ran to a nearby home and police were called.
The Irmo Police Department and SLED are investigating this case along with the Lexington County Coroners Office.
“This was not a random act. Bishop and the female knew each other and have some history of being together,” said Captain Courtney Dennis. “We are still investigating this case and reviewing all of the
evidence that we have collected.”
At this point, no charges have been filed, however, the investigation is still on-going. If you have any information on this case, you are asked to contact the Irmo Police Department or Crimestoppers at 888- CRIME-SC.
