CHEROKEE COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA) – The shooting death of a man following a reported argument is under investigation in Gaffney.
Cherokee County Coroner Dennis Fowler said the man was gunned down on a city street early Sunday morning.
Fowler identified the victim as 30-year-old Andre Rashard Gregory.
Gregory was shot in the middle of the 500 block of West Robinson Street at about 12:35 a.m., the coroner said.
Gregory was pronounced dead at the scene.
Witnesses in the neighborhood reported Gregory and another man, whom they were able to identify, got into a verbal argument after a vehicle was sideswiped, according to the coroner.
Following the shooting, the suspect fled the scene but was taken into custody by Cherokee County Sheriff’s deputies a short time later, Fowler said.
An autopsy will be performed as part of the investigation.
