The victim in a deadly shooting in Anderson has been identified. Anderson County Coroner Greg Shore says 34 year old Yesuef Jenkins was shot to death early Friday morning outside the home of the mother of one of his children. Shore says there was a confrontation between Jenkins and the unidentified shooter in the yard of the home on Sandlewood Drive. Shore says the argument led to Jenkins being shot multiple times. An autopsy is scheduled for Jenkins later Friday.

Sgt. Tilley says the suspect is considered "armed and dangerous," but they do not consider him a "public threat" because the shooting does not appear to be random.

Coroner Shore says the shooting victim, Yesuef Jenkins, had three children and worked at the bakery of a Kroger store. Shore says Jenkins lived with his mother on Maxie Drive in Anderson.

Officers were called to the scene on Sandlewood Drive at 12:30 a.m. Friday.  Officers say a 911 call came from a woman who said someone had been shot outside of her house.  

When officers arrived they found a man in his mid-20s dead in the front yard.  He had been shot at least once.  Investigators say another man was seen running from the scene.

Anderson City Officers began searching for the suspect with the assitance of the Anderson County Sheriff's office K-9 officer.  The sheriff's office helicopter also assisted in the search.
