Aiken police say a young man has died after being shot Friday night in the Paces Run apartment complex.

beyThe victim, identified by several friends as Kaliel Bey (pictured), was found lying in the roadway on Brandt Court when police were called about 8 p.m. Friday. The victim had at least one gunshot wound, a press release says.

The victim was rushed to the Augusta University Medical Center, where he died sometime later.

No suspects or arrests have been announced.

“Aiken Department of Public Safety is being assisted in this investigation by the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office, Second Judicial Circuit Solicitor’s Office, and the ATF RAGE Task Force,” a press release says.

A eulogy remembering those glory days of walking to school… high. Yep… no wonder body bags get filled in the CSRA faster than book clubs. U wyt me, dog?

      • Realist, thank you. Wasn’t a racist part of the comment. Could have been some white trash chiming in. Ignorant much???? Stop playing the same old tired card when confronted with opinions outside your understanding. Shuffle your deck.

          • Lady ,would you have commented so strongly had this been a “white ” kid , answer, hell no , and my post was about what “COULD HAVE ” caused his death NOTHING about Mr. Bey, Read my post once more for further clarity . Good day C. Alexander . (by the way I’ve been called a lot worse than “ASSHOLE” ! ! ! )

  2. Don’t take much to figure out all this had to do with DRUGS ,MONEY , GANGS , don’t think a girl entered into it to much ,then again I have been known to be wrong . Book clubs ??? Shed tears ??? Really ??? By reading the comments , just makes me wonder ! ! !

      • Wow the place is riddled with drugs crime and gun fire and here you are telling me to keep my assumptions to myself , you’re one to be talking there newbie with your little 2 posts .I think the majority of everyone that heard, read this story would agree with me . But thank you for your opinion . Good day C. Alexander .
