Investigators say 43-year-old Jermaine Maurice Jackson took a gun Gordon was carrying and shot him with it. He is charged with murder. What may have led to the shooting has not been released.

Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell says Gordon would volunteer to help neighbors who needed repairs but didn’t have the money.
