Suspect in deadly home invasion denied bond

GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA) – Greenville County Sheriff’s Office officials said a man has been arrested following a deadly shooting Thursday morning.

Deputies responded to a report of a shooting around 4:30 a.m. Thursday at a home in the 300 block of W. Wilburn Avenue in Greenville.

When they arrived on-scene, they found a man shot at least once. The victim died at the scene.

The Greenville County Coroner’s Office identified the victim as Terry Lambrusco Keels, 33, of Greenville.

An autopsy showed Keels died from gunshot wounds and his manner of death was ruled a homicide.

Investigators located the suspect, Leon Eric Brown, 47, near the scene and he was taken into custody.

“This stemmed from an ongoing dispute between the two so this was isolated and not an act of violence done randomly,” Greenville County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Ryan Flood said.

According to Flood, Brown was armed with a handgun when he went inside the home and shot the victim to death.

Brown was charged with murder, possession of a weapon during a violent crime, kidnapping, first-degree burglary and two counts of pointing and presenting.

“We have gathered there was one other victim inside at the time of the shooting. That victim was not shot, but the gun was pointed at them thus the multiple charges of pointing and presenting a firearm,” Flood said.

Brown was denied bond Thursday night.
