Lake City police say man may have information about fatal Lassie Street shooting

LAKE CITY, SC (WBTW) — Lake City police are looking for a man they believe may have information about a recent fatal shooting on Lassie Street.

Daryl Lanell Epps, 32, is considered a “person of interest” in the death of Jeremy Lenard McMillan, 36, of Columbia. He died after the Feb. 20 shooting, Florence County Coroner Keith von Lutcken said.

“We want to locate and interview Daryl Epps because we believe he has information that may be material and related to this murder,” Lake City Police Chief Jody Cooper told News13 on Sunday.

Police have not released additional information about their investigation.

McMillan spent time in jail after he was arrested in 2006 in Lee County for a shooting outside a nightclub that left two people dead and 12 others injured. He was released in 2019 after an appeal resulted in his murder convictions being reduced to intentional homicide.

Anyone with information that could help police find Epps is asked to call 911, the Lake City Police Department at 843-374-5421 or Crime Stoppers of the Pee Dee at 888-CRIME-SC.
