LAKE CITY, S.C. – A $1,000 reward is now being offered for information leading to the arrest of Gavin Less Nowlin.

The Lake City Police Department, Florence County Sheriff’s Office Special Response Team and U.S. Marshals have been in search of Nowlin this week following a shooting incident Tuesday night in Lake City.

A report from the Associated Press said Lake City Police Chief Kipp Coker said someone fired several shots at the back of his officers while they were questioning a different person. No one was hit by the gunfire around 9:20 p.m. Tuesday. Nowlin is the suspect.

Coker said investigators think Nowlin of Kingstree ran from the gas station after the shooting, the Associated Press report said. Florence County deputies helped Lake City officers look for the shooter for several hours, but could not find him Tuesday.

Lake City officers and deputy U.S. Marshals searched for leads Wednesday in Kingstree.

Anyone with information about Nowlin is asked to contact Crimestoppers of the Pee Dee at 1-888-CRIME-SC or call 843-598-8712.
