Murder Investigation Continues

Beaufort Police investigators worked through the night collecting evidence, interviewing

witnesses and following up on leads after 28 year old Travis Holmes was fatally shot on the

evening of July 26 at the Subway restaurant at 330 Robert Smalls Parkway. The gunman had

been in the restaurant with a woman when Holmes came in. The suspect and the woman left

and then the suspect returned and immediately targeted Holmes. Witnesses reported that the

suspect fled in a dark colored four door vehicle possibly a Ford. The officers were assisted at

the scene by members of SLED’s crime scene unit and Beaufort County Sheriff’s Deputies who

helped secure the area and identify potential witnesses. Although there are theories as to what

motivated the crime none has been verified at this time. Since the investigation is active many

details can’t be released as they might jeopardize it.
