Columbia man charged with murder in shooting death

Deputies have arrested a man accused of shooting a man to death inside a car Thursday.

Tyrese Shevon Madison, 24, is charged with murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime, according to arrest warrants. Madison is also charged in connection to drugs he had in his possession when he was arrested.

“Investigators have been working hard to develop leads in this case since it happened Thursday afternoon,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Based on their review of the evidence, Madison shot Gary Anthony Kelly II while both men were sitting in the front seat of Kelly’s car on Foxfire Drive.”

Detectives found Madison had been in possession of some of Kelly’s property and tried to hide and destroy it, according to Koon.

Deputies arrested Madison Friday at his home in Pine Grove Apartments. He is being held in the Lexington County Detention Center.
