EGGVILLE COMMUNITY – Police are investigating the death of a 37-year-old man who was shot Wednesday outside his Lee County home.
Dale Parker was shot in his driveway at 527 County Road 1543 in the Eggville community.
Lee County Sheriff Jim Johnson said Parker was shot several times.
Sheriff’s vehicles lined the side of the county road into the evening Wednesday. The 911 call came around 5:30 p.m., according to Johnson, and the body was transported away from the crime scene about 6:45 p.m.
Family members who lived on the property and in the area were visibly shaken as investigators inspected the scene and conducted interviews.
“It is obviously very early in the investigation and as soon as we have more information or need help from the community, we will put out more information,” Johnson said.
Johnson didn’t say if there was a suspect and no arrests have been made.
