IVA, S.C. (WSPA) — Authorities have been investigating a deadly shooting Tuesday in Iva.
The Anderson County Sheriff’s Office said deputies responded to a shooting at about 6:30 a.m. on Riddle Road near Sexton Gin Road.
According to the Anderson County coroner’s office, a deer hunter found the shooting victim lying just off of the roadway near the intersection of Riddle Road and Highway 413.
“Said a guy was laying in a ditch and they could see his boots. When the sheriff’s office showed up, they were able to find the suspicious guy the call was about, but he was already shot and deceased there,” said Sgt. JT Foster.
Kristofer Michael Shaw, 26, of Anderson, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the coroner’s office.
Shaw’s death has been ruled as a homicide.
“We are a very tight knit community. I mean everyone knows everybody so when you hear something like this it’s just very disturbing,” said Brandi Williams who lives in Iva.
