Halifax County Sheriff Fred S. Clark identified the victim in the Sunday morning homicide as 32-year-old Travis Leon Hughes of South Boston.
He received multiple gunshot wounds after a dispute broke out at a residence on Huell Matthews Highway between multiple individuals before 2 a.m. Sunday, said Clark.
Hughes was transported to Sentara Halifax Regional Hospital by private vehicle where he later died.
The sheriff said Halifax County deputies and officers from the South Boston Police Department responded to the hospital and the residence early Sunday morning.
“We are continuing to follow all leads,” said Clark.
Clark is asking anyone with information to contact Cpt. Mike Womack with the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office at 434-476-3339.
