"Basically, all the homicides and the shootings pretty much all the violent deaths we had in the last year, and so far the beginning of his year is people who pretty much have known each other. Some of them domestic, some of the can being called something that happen on a spur of a minute."
As deputies continue to search for clues, the department is hoping that any community member with information on this shooting would come forward to help solve this case.
