A 28-year-old Camden man has been arrested and charged with murder in the shooting death of his 19 year old girlfriend.
According to a Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) press release, at about 2:45 a.m. Saturday, KCSO deputies arrested Alexander Francis Harmon, of 575 Cleveland School Road Camden, and charged him with murder after he allegedly shot and killed his girlfriend.

According to the press release, Kershaw County 911 dispatch received a call early Saturday morning from Harmon’s father, who lives in New York. The elder Harmon stated that his son had just called him and stated that he had shot his girlfriend and was going to kill himself, the shooting taking place at the Cleveland School Road residence.

KCSO patrol and traffic enforcement deputies responded to the Cleveland School Road residence and were able to take Harmon into custody without further incident, according to the press release. Inside the home, deputies found a white female victim deceased, with a gunshot wound to the head. Kershaw County Coroner David West identified the victim as Katelin Jordyn Crocker, 19, who lived with Harmon on an off-and-on basis at his home.

Deputies secured the scene and KCSO investigators were called to the residence. As per KCSO protocol on homicides, investigators contacted SLED and requested the SLED Crime Scene Unit respond to the home and process the crime scene. A 12-gauge shotgun and an empty shell casing were recovered inside the residence. A body camera worn by one of the Traffic Unit officers recorded Harmon admitting that he had shot Crocker, according to the press release.

Harmon was transported to the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office where he was interviewed. He was then transported to the Kershaw County Detention Center where he remains pending a bond hearing before a circuit court judge, according to the press release.

Harmon has no previous criminal record, according to the press release.
