The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office needs your help in solving a shooting case from 2003.

Nathaniel Davis, 25, was shot multiple times in the early morning hours on March, 8, 2003, according to an advisory.

The suspects shot Davis while he was in his car trafficking crack cocaine on MacPhersonville Road in Yemassee, according to the advisory.

Those suspects are still unknown at this time. Patricia Cooper, an eyewitness who accompanied Davis in his vehicle, was also unable to identify the suspects, the advisory states.

Although she did give the description of three men driving a green Buick, deputies believe Cooper was withholding information, according to the advisory.

CSI recovered a large amount of crack cocaine in Davis's vehicle. Cooper was ultimately charged with the trafficking offense, as she was complicit in the proposed drug deal, deputies say.

Through the investigation, deputies determined that Davis was a "high-level and well-known drug dealer," which they believe is the reason he was targeted, according to the advisory.

A reward of up to $2500 is offered for information leading to an arrest in any Beaufort County Cold Case.

BCSO says it is making cold case files like this accessible to the public in hopes that someone might come forward with information that may not have yet been uncovered.

No matter how insignificant it may seem, any information offered in reference to a cold case could prove to be the missing link needed to solve the case, BCSO says.

If you have any information regarding this cold case or any others, you may contact Captain Bob Bromage at (843) 255- 3402, (843) 816-8013 or robertb@bcgov.net or Crimestoppers.
