SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA) – A suspect has been arrested after a 67-year-old man was injured in a drive-by shooting. 

The incident happened on Friday around 11:05 a.m. on 115 Pennell Street, according to the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office.   

Deputies said a 67-year-old man was located inside of the home, and had what appeared to be multiple gunshot wounds.

He was transported to the hospital by EMS. His condition is unknown at this time.

Deputies found multiple bullet holes on the exterior of the residence. 

It was determined that the victim was an unintended target of the drive- by shooting. Deputies say the incident likely stemmed from an earlier dispute between the suspect and another person at the home.
