RIDGELAND, SC (WTOC) -

The Jasper County Sheriff's Office is investigating an overnight shooting.

Jermaine Austin, 36, was fatally shot at about 12:30 a.m. in the yard of a family member's home on Capt. Bill Road. That's on the road where the victim lives.

Family members told WTOC that Austin just turned 36 on Wednesday and that they were grilling out with friends and family that Austin was shot in the head. 

The JCSO would not confirm whether the shooting was a drive-by, whether it was random or targeted or where the gunshots struck Austin. 

JCSO has been at the scene for hours. They have called in the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division to investigate
