COLLETON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Investigators in Colleton County say a 29-year-old man who was found dead in a ditch was shot several times.

Officials with the Colleton County Sheriff's Office say a body was found Saturday morning around 10 a.m. in a ditch near Islandton on Ashton Road which is a short distance away from the Colleton and Hampton county lines.

The Colleton County Coroner's Office identified the victim as Quentin Bunch of Fairfax. The coroner's office says a passerby found the body.

Investigators from Colleton County, Hampton County and Allendale County were all notified.

According to authorities, due to the multiple jurisdictions involved, and the uncertainty of where the shooting happened, the case will be turned over to the State Law Enforcement Division for investigation.

"There are several leads in this case and investigators are working hand in hand to find out what occurred," said Sheriff R.A. Strickland."If anyone has any information I encourage them to come forward or call Crime Stoppers of the Lowcountry."
