Tuesday’s murder could be linked to weekend shooting

A reported Tuesday night shooting in which a 19-year-old man was wounded has become a homicide.

Warren County Coroner Doug Huskey said Kameron J. Logan died during surgery about 11:05 p.m. Tuesday at Merit Health River Region, where he was pronounced dead by doctors. An autopsy has been ordered.

Logan was shot earlier in the evening at the Azalea Trace Apartments, 320 Fisher Ferry Road, in Warren County.

Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said sheriff’s deputies responding to a 911 call about 7:30 p.m. arrived to find Logan lying outside an apartment.

He said deputies responded Saturday to a shooting at the same apartment where a 17-year-old teenager was shot in the midsection and leg.

He said the Tuesday shooting occurred under “very similar circumstances and we feel the two are going to be related.” He said investigators are following leads involving the Tuesday shooting. No arrests have been made.

The two calls to the apartments are not the first for the sheriff’s office. Between Jan. 1 and Tuesday, Pace said, deputies have responded to 135 calls at Azalea Trace.

He said anyone with information on the shooting should call the Warren County Sheriff’s Office at 601-636-1761, Crime Stoppers at 601-355-TIPS(8477) or log on to www.p3tips.
