Bland Represents Lexington Restaurateur Charged with Murder


Police say 49-year-old Gregorio Leon, who owns several Mexican restaurants in South Carolina, shot and killed a man Sunday night at this Park and Ride in Lexington.


LEXINGTON, SC – Just days after a well-known Lexington restaurateur allegedly fired shots into the back seat of a pickup truck that held his wife and another man, Maria Leon told a circuit court judge on Friday that her husband should be released on bond.

Maria Leon was with the still-unidentified man in a Lexington commuter parking lot on the evening of Valentine’s Day when Greg Leon, 49, shot into the vehicle and killed the man, according to arrest warrants.

“I shot my wife’s lover,” Leon said on a recorded 911 line, according to the warrants. He surrendered to the Lexington police later that night.
