COLUMBIA, S.C. — Richland County deputies say a man was killed while doing his job and attempting to repossess a vehicle in Richland County.

The incident occurred early morning Wednesday, June 12, in the 7200 block of Fairmont Road in the Capitol View neighborhood. Officers said the shooting stemmed from a towing company repossessing a vehicle.

The victim has been identified as 46-year-old Steven Hughes of Lexington. The victim was working for the towing company at the time of his death.
