LANCASTER, S.C. (AP) _ A Lancaster man has been shot to death during a home invasion.

Lancaster County Deputy Coroner Tony Broome says the victim was 36-year-old Kenneth Blanding.

Police were called to Blanding's home about 7 p.m. Sunday and found Blanding on the front porch. He was pronounced dead in the scene.

Broome says Blanding was shot in the chest and legs.

Police have not said if a suspect has been identified.

Officials say Blanding recently had been released from prison for his role in the 1999 death of the owner of a pool hall.
